Feeding live rodents to pet snakes can be dangerous to the animals. Rodents like mice and rats will become defensive when threatened. They will try to bite and scratch their predator, which can cause significant injuries to the pet snake. Instead, frozen feeder mice and rats are a much safer feeding option.
Frozen feeder mice and rats are now one of the most popular snake food options because of their benefits. Not only are frozen rodents safer than live mice and snakes but they are also much more convenient for the owners.
The article below will examine the reasons why you should consider using frozen feeder mice and rats to feed your pet snake. If you’re looking for frozen rodents for sale, check out the different packaging size options available on Strictly Reptiles, the premier online reptile store.
Reasons to Use Frozen Feeder Mice and Rats
As previously mentioned, live mice and rats present a real threat to pet snakes. Albeit small and seemingly harmless, they actually have sharp claws and teeth. When threatened, they use their claws and teeth to defend themselves from their prey.
This is the reason why it is always recommended to watch over your pet snake carefully when using live rodents to feed snakes. Otherwise, the snake could be bitten and scratched relentlessly, causing serious damage to its scales and potentially its inner organs.
Another reason pet snake owners prefer to use frozen rodents to feed their scaly friends is that keeping live mice and rats can itself be a hassle. Keeping live rodents means having an enclosure for them as well as caring for them until mealtime.
The feeding process is also frightening to the rodent, causing high levels of stress until finally engulfed by the snake. By contrast, frozen mice and rats are humanely killed before flash freezing them for the shipping process.
