Still just as big a deal IMO. When taken in to captivity, all the natural parasite control is taken away and infestations can become fatal to the animal. When you make the decision to keep an animal in captivity, special adaptations must be made to ensure its health and well-being.

A friend of mine wanted a snake for a long time. She's a vegetarian and didn't want one because she couldn't feed it live. Then she discovered frozen rodents so she finally got the snake.
LOL they seem to lose all the cute factor as soon as they freeze up
