Mice Mice Mice Mice

Don't get me wrong people...mice make great pets, but they also have other
purposes. I have raised countless numbers of these things in my day, atleast
10,000 of them. Some of them have been pets, all of my breeders were especially
friendly, but when they stopped producing I knew where their rightful place
was. They have kept my bearded dragons, leopard geckos, red tail boas, burmese
pythons, and monitors well fed. That is what mice are for, first and foremost.
In the wild they are a pestilence, and in the home they may be cute, but they
are, as God intended them to be, low on the food chain.

Yes, but this is alt.pets.mice.  The key word there is 'pets'.  So unless
you're trying to troll the group, that's an important thing to keep in mind.
Most people here are aware that reptiles need to eat, too, but this particular
newsgroup is a forum for people who like to keep mice as pets.  Try
alt.pets.reptiles if you want to discuss reptile feeding.

I would have to agree with the first person.  We are very aware that
reptiles eat rodents.  We do not need your input on it.  

Life is not the game that people think it is, I might add.  Animals that are
"low" on the food chain are nonetheless important.  And the animals that eat
them have a few more purposes other than being your pets.  We do not enjoy
animals more or less because we know they eat or are eaten by other animals.
 There's a balance in nature and all parties are important, from a blue
whale down to the tiniest bacteria.

First and foremost, mice are designed to survive.  So are humans, and so are
practically every living thing on this planet.  Their existence is what
keeps your reptiles alive, not their deaths.
