I don't trust freezing or CO2 where herps are concerned, guys.

CO2 would take much, much longer and may cause distress, because their metabolisms are much more tolerant of low-oxygen environments.

As for freezing, there is some concern that a lot of pain could occur as water in tissues crystallize, and yes, certain herps have a high freeze tolerance.
