In a cage or in the wild, a snake put in front of a rodent have as many chances to get bit than in the wild..
And by this im saying that, once the snake caught it.. the rodent still can have a chance to bit the snake in the cage or out of it..
I have a burmese python that only wanted live food for awhile, even when she caught it.. she got bit.. it would have been the same in the wild. Even if they have great instincts, they still can do mistakes too...
A snake thats doesnt want to eat a live prey given to him wont attack it, and you can see it quicly when they wont, so you do have a chance to get it out of the snake's cage so it wont get attacked by the rodent..
Thats what I meant..
"Just be yourself. It doesn't matter if it's good enough for someone else."
