That truly is incredible.
Good lord. one year we let our little boston eat as much as it wanted to on Thanks giving. That poor things back legs did not touch the ground for it's belly.
I' d hate to be around when it passes through.
If I'd have known what that pic was going to be of, I so wouldn't have clicked on it.
That gave me goosebumps!
I'd hate to be the snake when it passes through! The jaw dislocates to stretch enough to eat something that big - but does the anus? OUCH!
This picture is a good representation to show men what being pregnant feels like.
This is just sick to look at...
I fed a huge rat to one of my snakes before - and it does look quite uncomfortable - but I'm sure the snake in the picture will be fine, and grow another few inches from the experience.
I'll bet you could make a King Sized comforter from the shed of this thing!
You have a snake... I love God's creatures, but snakes and bugs go all the way to the bottom of my list. Poor rat (can't believe I said that) was it dead before you fed it to your pet?
I have five snakes, and I don't kill their food first because I can't. It's not in my nature to kill anything, but it is in their nature to do it. It came down to - do I want the snakes to starve or not.
Maybe this photo will change your mind. It's Mergatroid - just emerging from his shell as a newborn baby. http://www.pbase.com/sir_erik/image/47420471
She's a yearling now.
A snake's digestion is very slow, but its extreeeemely thorough. Their poop is a lot like that of owls. This critter probably won't need to eat again for months.
Um, no, sorry. I don't love him any more than I did before.
But I'm so glad you do!
Yeah? Well, I have a six foot ball python that when it eats a big rat - well, let's just say it looks like a dog got into the tank with him sometimes!
Sometimes, it's a white blop. Sometimes, it's just as brown as doggie do. I can't figure it out - but the snakes are healthy.
You can't just reach out to that chin and go goochie goo?
Okay I think that made it worse.
When your snakey was eating the rat sick: ) did the rat suffer? I don't want any living thing to suffer.
It's all over with pretty fast, but yes, it does. So would starvation though, from the snake's point of view, I suppose. It's an ugly business, but so is a slaughterhouse that hurts the animals to make your dog's food, is how I look at it.
If it's any consolation, two rats were "saved" recently because my daughter thought they were too cute. We now have rat pets, too.
Heavens to Mergatroid lol
What kind of snake is it GlitchWizard?
Mergatorid is a bubblegum cornsnake.
Halford and Angus are ball pythons.
Cuddles and Pandora are red tail boas.
Slinky is an iguana.... I could go on for days.
