A mini rant once again! The other day I bought a box of pinkies for my corn during my lunch break, and I brought them back to the office with me and told one of my friends about it. This other girl heard us talking in the lift and went NUTS! She was like "OH MY GOD THAT IS SO CRUEL!!!!" and just went "Huh?" cos I had absolutely no idea what she was talking about. She went on to say "That's so CRUEL to the mice how could you do such a thing that's so inhumane etc etc" so I told her it's not cruel, it's life! Yes I am sad that the mice have to die, but what am I going to do, feed the snake veggies? Life just doesn't work that way! In the wild they'd eat mice anyway and there's literally nothing anyone can do about it! She was acting like snakes are the only animals that eat other animals and she was just all round appalled by this STARTLING FACT. She made it sound like I was only keeping carnivores so I could kill and torture other animals. I don't know why I'm still so irritated about it. I know people here aren't very receptive to reptiles in general but that was just... For lack of a better word, just STUPID.
