Lol it is the norm. Funny thing is they are confusing new keepers by giving their norm. Not the hobby's.


And **** all of you who can put a few feeders in ziplocks to thaw. I'd go through boxes of them a week if I did that. I just toss them in a dedicated rat tub and make rat soup.

LOL. I actually only have 6 snakes in my house right now and 4 of them belong to my 12 year old daughter. That said, I reuse the same bags a lot.

Haha, exactly! Everywhere they look they will see and hear the way the masses do it, which goes against what they are being taught... its like a snake cult in the making

Re: Thawing frozen rat

Imagine what would of happened if you stated you've been using the microwave set to 25 seconds for many years without issues besides the occasional "oops"

Ha! No thanks on the microwave. Too risky for me but glad it's working for you.

I was in a fb community and out of it in less than 4 days before I left because of the attitudes.

Re: Thawing frozen rat

Jjhill. I was on a group called "Roast my selfie" Where people put their pics up and you roast them no holds barred, I put mine up and took everything thrown at me... Roasted someone elses pic and was reported and got a 30 day ban!! That's the logic of people on there. Always a Google or Wikipedia snake expert who has little actual experience, on snake groups too, trying to flame guys who have been in the hobby longer. I'm just happy to learn and if there is something I have read or heard I would suggest it but never force my opinion on anyone or be patronising to more experienced people, it's like Facebook group mods and members enjoy insulting people's intelligence and attempt to gang up on and bully people, the little keyboard assassin's lol

Re: Thawing frozen rat

Yea but you roasted one of the admins

chop chop, off you go with your 30-day return ticket.

There are altogether just a few groups on FB related to husbandry that I like and remain civil and controlled at all (well, most) times... Until someone posts a picture of their BP racks or leopard gecko's on newpaper because "impaction", that is with a "Thank you for the add, here are my tubs" kinda post.
