Snakes striking at frozen mice. Watch the video!

Frozen mice are what all of our small and medium sized snakes get to eat every Wednesday (the bigger guys get rats or rabbits). Out of the freezer in the morning and fully defrosted by the afternoon. Last week I thought I’d film Sarah and Duncan serving up dinner to a few of our snakes and put a small video together for you guys.

It’s fascinating to watch snakes feeding, even though ours are all captive bred and have only ever eaten frozen they still have a lightening fast strike response. All of our snakes are non-venomous and so in the wild would kill their prey by constriction. When you watch the video you will notice that many of them will still instinctively wrap themselves around the thawed out mouse.

Hope you like the video, if you do please feel free to share it with friends using the buttons below!
