I think that guy meant that after he thawed out the rodent, he super-heated it with warm water. Its a well-known husbandry trick that is in at least 8 well-respected herp books. When I feed my snakes, I sometimes have to feed 60 adult snakes in ONE night. After I get through about 35 feedings, the F/T rodents are more room temperature. Fine for the colubrids, but some of the Boids won't strike at it. So I re-heat it in warm water.

So now let me ask you, am I a novice that shouldn't be giving advice? Do I know nothing about snakes? I'm VERY interested to hear your response.

Very interested.
