These reasons are why I feed fresh killed only the last few years. I had to put my finger in an ETB mouth and take a bite, as the mouce had it by the lip. Just wanted those diehards as you say to know you feed different if done with live food. Unlike F/T or F/K where you can just walk away.

But even that split second or longer (that are reflexes cant react too) is long enough for a rodent to take out an eye, or give your snake a severe puncture wound.

I had this happen once , and i didn't even notice the snake had been bitten in the neck as it was coiled around the mouse in an awkward position that left the head of the rodent out of sight.
It wasn;t till i saw blood on the paper towel till i new something was wrong.
