I have to half agree with Chuck on this one (Finally! lol). CB snakes being fed FT prey (which is a good thing!) tend to get obese. A lil tugging of prey, inducing them to constrict gives them some kinda exercise at least. Helps keep muscle tone.

Don't get me wrong as I don't mean a tug-of-war with Monty. That would just cause breakage of it's teeth which may lead to infection. What I mean is something more of a gentle tug, just to stimulate a dying animal, not a wild thrashing one!

Oh, and btw, all this being done in a safe manner where there's no potential harm to snake or owner. Getting a feeding bite from a 15ft burm is nothing to boast about. Just plain stupidity.
