Hey everyone I was wondering what's the best way to transition my king snake from eating already dead/frozen mice to being able to eat live ones. Since I've had her she's been on thawed out mice. While feed however i do use tongs and make sure she constricts the medium size mouse then consumes it. However, she's not dumb and knows its already dead and unconstricts to completely swollow the mouse. So is it ok to just "throw" in a small live mouse into the feeding container and just let her natural instincts take over? Here are her statistics: Age: 8-10 months Length: 2' 4" Width: About the size of a penny Feeding Schedual: 2 medium sized mice every Saturday Unfortunately this is the only pix I have of her, I will take more!
