The option MUST be there to purchase live. I have a Kenyan who has been fed live her whole life and we were JUST able to get her over the fresh killed. And by fresh, I mean whacked and right into her mouth. It's the only way she'll take it. We have the same problem with our baby Kenyan. (See the Erycines forum if you want the full detail.)
Anyway, for those of us who are either unwilling or unable to breed our own rodents, the option HAS to be there for us so that our snakes don't starve. It's a sad fact, but some snakes just will not take prekilled prey.
