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.
