I agree with Marissa it's the natural food chain. I also find it's very subjective. I've talked to people that think it's fine to feed mice and rats but are horrified at the thought of feeding a rabbit. Bottom line for me: if it's not a pet lizard or snake I would use it for food.

i would probably avoid getting a snake that required to eat other herps. are we fogetting king snakes? they eat other snakes in the wild, but we are lucky enough that snakes are not their only source of diet. I would maybe feed a snake an anole once in a while as a 'treat' lol

I've dealt with feeding "reject" baby corn snakes to coral snakes, I currently keep vine snakes and night snakes - both of which are lizard eaters, I also have eastern hognose which are amphibian eaters. The cycle of life doesn't really bother me much. I try to keep the diet as natural as possible, but don't shy away from feeding mice to my vine snake sometimes.

There is a fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

Hmm.. do you feed f/t corns then, or do prekill them first?
