Carpet python eats a fish

Hi, folks.
So I feed my python with roped (tied by a thread) together a chicken, chicken necks and a fish.
If you want to see how carpet python strike a chicken and then start eating not chicken, but a fish go to a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chz7qjk8QpY
She did it 2 times already.
I need to say that a chicken is warmed, and she strikes it. I'm wondering whether she will strike warm fish.
I should to say that a fish didn't touch with a chicken so a fish didn't have chicken scent, and actually I do that thing to prevent a chicken having a fish scent.

Re: Carpet python eats a fish

Looks like nobody cares carpet prefer eating fish. But I want to add some update.
Today I warmed a fish and gave it to my carpet python. A fish was on a plate. She did strike it but a fish was warmed in microwave oven and a heat was too much, so the fish broke off on 3 pieces. 2 of them left on a plate while she contracted her prey. She ate it all include 2 pieces from a plate I left at the floor of her cage.
I heated a fish in a ,microwave oven because she was very reluctant to strike food thawed with water.

Re: Carpet python eats a fish

I've seen other people feeding chicken parts, fish, and even steaks, to their snakes. I guess I just don't see the point. Why not offer a whole chick rather that a chicken neck or leg? Different strokes for different folks.
