I know this is nature: snakes and other carnivores eat things like rodents and rabbits. I, however, could not bear the thought of buying a bunny to feed to the snake. Lucky for me, the boa's owner returned home, and I returned his snake and passed on the vet's advice.

Again, we can take comfort that snakes -- at least boas & pythons -- are very quick, efficient killers. Their prey does not suffer.
