....... I once feed a toad to a Python and for some reason it tried to spit it out , so I pushed it a little farter back in it's mouth . It squirmed , yawned wide and wriggled it's face in attempt to dislodge the toad from it's rear fangs , but it was stuck in there pretty good .
Eventually I decided this snake wasn't going swallow the toad and got tired of watching it struggle to get rid of it ... so I gently helped it get the toad removed w/o much trouble at all .
The snake sorta became listless afterwards and soon stopped moving altogether . It died in my lap latter .
Lesson , don't feed toads to snakes . Turns out they are poisonous to them :-( . You'd think the snake expert people at the zoo would of warned me about that , when I explained to them that I believe it's time to start force feeding this Python because she hadn't eaten in almost 2 months . Tried all the normal offerings prior but it just wouldn't eat and was loosing too much weight .
In hind sight I should of just given the snake to the experts but I was encouraged to try the force feed method 1st .
Frogs , yeah frogs are Ok ... whiskey I'm not so sure about but if they keep coming back for more then I guess it's a good partnership .
So what did you catch with the frog ??
