That might be the understatement of the millenia right there, lol! Sharks don't have the feeding response of these guys! Retics don't have the feeding response of the these guys. They seem to have very powerful jaws for a snake, and the pair I had(adults over six feet, heavy powerful snakes)would grab a rat and shake it, like a monitor, and you could hear the bones snapping in the rat's dead body when they bit down. It would not be uncommon for the rat's insides to come out or eyes to pop out from the pressure of the bite. These snakes seem perpetually hungry, too, even when in shed. I don't think you could have ever filled mine up.What a beauty. I've heard this species has a strong feeding response.
