Taking meal photos

I thought I would start this thread, with the topic being snakes eating. If it catches on, might prove to have some cool photos.

Mine are a bit "bland." Nothing super cool.

First off, a Longnose and a Banded gecko.





Here are some rattler photos.

#1. AZ Black and mouse.



#2. WDB and mouse.



#3. Sidewinder and Scelopurus ssp.

Well a longnose snake will mostly eat lizards in the wild so I doubt that one would eat mice. If his snakes are wc, then for sure the longnose will prefer a lizard to a mice.

Some snakes prey upon small lizards, whats the difference between a feeder lizard and feeder mouse or rat? nothing really IMO.

If it's a wc, the snake might not want to eat mice. He lives in Arizona, the snake can very well be a wc, it's found in Arizona.

Here's my contribution, my WD and pinkies, gone in 6 seconds.



Great pics everyone! The whole snake eating lizards is irrelevant. That's nature folks, circle of life and all that.

This one's for you lizlady. ;) Warning graphic!

ever heard of a feeder leo?

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v167/Vanan/Snakes/vineeating1.jpg">

It's a fact of life. Get over it! Just cos longnoses CAN eat rodents doesn't mean it's best for them. I, for one, recommend feeding herp eaters herps occasionally. An all rodent diet IS NOT the best diet for a lot of snake species in captivity.

P.S. Apologies too all the leo people out there. The pic was meant to get a point across. BTW, the leo in the pic was raised as a feeder by yours truly.

Oh my, you in trouble now Vanan ;-) Should photoshop your image and change the color of that tail to a brownish and pass it as a banded, less comon and people seem to not mind as much. lol

Beat me to it Vanan. But honestly, you may keep them as pets, while some species live off of them. Similarly, many people keep MICE and RATS as pets, and the majority of snake owners feed those rodents to their snakes.
