Interesting point, I have no experience with venomous so I am certainly not an authority on the matter.
I am sick to death of that pic too, but, from the responses, it is evident that some people haven't seen it. Granted, that rodent must have had a fair amount of time to inflict that damage. The live prey/f-t prey debate will go on as long as there is a captive herp trade and I suppose everyone has to just agree to disagree. I prefer to take the route with the least amount of risk; however, if you have an animal that only takes live than the options are pretty limited.
