The problem is, we make all manner of assumptions, some of which do have merit and we make them with half a deck of cards. We narrow their options, and say, that is what they do. Its not that its totally wrong, its what they do with narrowed options.
I bred greybands for decades and fed them mice most of that time and did not have problems. In fact, one year, I lived in New Orleans(working on the zoo) I could not find mice, so I fed them chicken gizzards, and hearts and stuff. And they ate that and reproduced well with strong neonates. Now sure how that would work over several years.
Speaking of diets, there's this in situ herp page, where this fella shows copperheads, commonly consuming cicadas, not baby copperheads, adults climbing up and eating them. Hows them apples?
