I've been wanting to try frozen/thawed rats for my Boa, "Luci". She usually eats fresh killed. I bought 4 jumbos a week or so ago, and killed & froze them. She's eating them like a champ as I type this! Now I may have to buy a small freezer to keep rats in..my wife would kill me if she knew I had those rats in her freezer! It would be nice to get ratsicles & mousesicles for all my herps! With all I would save on not buying live rodents, I could get another snake! Hmm..

Well..I went to pick up another 10 gallon tank for my baby Snow Corn yesterday. He's about outgrown the "Critter-Keeper" I had him in. Anyway..the shop had gotten a new snake in..a tiny baby Creamsicle Corn. Pretty little rascal. So I made the comment that if he would eat for me, he could go home with me. The shop was out of pinkies, so I gathered up the tank and a screen top, and was about to pay for everything.

The kid that runs the place said.."wait a second, lets look back here"..so he comes up with a pinkie from a dwarf hamster...lol. I was holding the Creamsicle Corn while he was getting the hamster. He put the pinkie in the tank, I started to put the snake in with it...and he nailed the pinkie before I let him go! Good thing I got the 10 gallon tank..the Creamsicle is in the "Critter-Keeper" now. :-)
Got about a $20 discount on everything too. I like that kid..lol.

Good for you, Roger. Happy Creamsicle. Lucky snake.

Heheh... I just disposed of 8 hamster pinkies here. My snakes aren't allowed live prey so the pinks went to my lizards and spiders.

Congrats on the new baby! Creamsicles are SO pretty!
