Well, Craig, I would imagine you store the leftovers in the ratfrigerrator...
Never any leftovers!

Just curious why you don't feed them live prey. Is it the risk to the snakes from the rats? Was it hard to train them to eat dead food?

When I had a boa constrictor, we fed him live mice.

My corn snake has been injured before when I fed him a live mouse. Took forever to heal, and I felt so bad.

Uh, well, my son is an wildlife enironmental specialist and when he was in school, there was a coyote outside during the day running amok. Coyotes are usually shy and nocturnal, but they noticed it was foaming at the mouth and they shot it. And decapitated it and put the head in my freezer, so 'they could test it and see if it was rabid.'

GET. IT. OUT!!!!

After that, they were required to defrost and bleach my freezer.

My ex put a dead hawk in my freezer. At least it was in a bag. I'm not sure what he was going to do with it. The way we got it was very strange. We were moving out of the log cabin. There was an eagle that kept showing up on the windy road we were driving on. Then it threw the dead hawk in our path. Felt like bad medicine/juju.

He thought you looked hungry, and was trying to feed you. A nice interspecies gesture.

The nail on the head! Snakes can't be "trained", they can be conditioned to environmental stimulation.

Signs were there but no copulation. Maybe next season.
