If you saturate the air volume with C02 the feeder rodent goes to sleep and does not have any real pain due to acute oxygen deprivation...If I remember, the CO2 fools the brain(medulla oblongata portion) to believe that it is absorbing air but because there is no Oxygen the body shuts down and the rodent goes to sleep......lack of enough Oxygen is another thing altogether...that would not be nice...freezing the rodent afterwards, not while alive, is then the procedure
