Re: Semi-aquatic

Some fish contain thiaminase, which destroys thiamin (vitamin B1), an essential nutrient. ... Snakes fed nothing but fish with thiaminase develop thiamin deficiency. Thiamin deficiency is potentially fatal but can be treated with massive doses of thiamin.

Be careful of the fish you choose!
