That poor snake is on a poster we use to show why we do not feed live. Even people who do not like snakes find it offensive, and pity the snake.

The science center lost a few snakes because of live feeding accidents. When asked why they feed live, tha answer was they could not find frozen rats. It is easy to make a live rat dead, as compared to making a frozen one stunned.

We also have a few posters with peoplle who were bitten by venomous snakes, because kids just dont understand that there is nothing "COOL" about keeping a cobra or viper when it tags you. It takes a tremendous amount of skill and discipline to keep venomous snakes.
