Lol, thats ok wuntu. Actually I hatched them this year and they are pets, I just feed the ones who look sick, or are significantly smaller. The snake's fine. As I mentioned, I had just over fed her, and she couldn't eat anymore. I'm more careful now, and hopefully it wont happen again.
Its a good idea to freeze fish prior to feeding
I don't really know if thats true or not. Some fish have thiaminase (sp?) which gets rid of thiamin. If you freeze them, I hear it increases the concentration of thiaminase, and your snake could get thiamin deficiency. But, I don't know for sure. I warm the frozen fish up before feeding though, which destroyes the thiaminase. Thanks for all the concern, she's doing great now. ~TR~
