stkkts, the stick and the hook are always aside but with venomous there's no need for that. Once the live mouse is thrown in the cage, after 1 minute is dead.
RMBolton you cannot and must not feed frozens to venomous snakes.
Poison of the snake must do it's work on the live prey.
I give live prey only to my venomous snakes.
If the snake won't strike in the next minute, i remove the live mouse.
I can understand when a venomous snake is hungry.
When i see the signs i throw the live mice.
Like i said previously, after 1 min. is dead.
The fear leads to death as the window to the courtyard...JUMP!
