I dunno...he said that his other snakes ate "cold" food, which leads me to think that they, while probably not solid ice, were not well-heated.
I'm not really sure I understand your question? Are the grounds for your statement that you know nothing about snakes that you reheat for prey in warm water? If so, I don't think that's a comparable situation since the awareness level is different between you reheating a prey item that you knew should be hotter but just got cold b/c of the logistics of snake feeding, and someone who just realized that their snake prefers warm food to cold food, ya know?
I may be misunderstanding what you're getting at...
