I'm a feeder of fresh killed, that used to feed live for years. I have had snakes get a few nips in the past but nothing more than a scratch or two. I know this sounds a bit "so/so" but feeding
live and leaving live in the cage must be seen as different. All those pictures of herps all bitten up must be kept in perspective. No reptile will get that amount of damage if your there to help if needed. If you feed live, the reptile should take it right away or remove it. Never leave for even a minute.
This is not being said, to say feed live. But rather to caution if you are set to only feed live.
