Today at work: Callaway Pet Corral (in which you can visit at
http://www.moonsgarden.com/~russel ) the owner fed one of our two albino
western diamond backs. Today he fed it what we thought was a dead rat
(anyone would assume this after beating it against a wall several times
over). Anyway, he ate the rat but of course since he sensed that it was
dead did not strike it injecting it fatal venom. Well, after a couple
of minutes the owner walked back by and noticed the snake doing
something out of the ordinary. He ran around to the other side of the
exhibit to get a better look. The snake had spit the rat back up. And
the weird thing was that the rat immediatly began running around. It
was covered in slime and *** (in which we are hoping is from the rats
internal bleeding and not the snake).
Has anyone ever heard of this happening before?
