Oh man . I know it doesn't justify distressing animals, but if it makes you feel any better it seemed really calm the whole time this was going on (it was for only a minute or two). I hope the poor thing was okay! D:

Thank you very much!

mrs v. viper wrote: yeah you see thats exactly my problem with those animals. You say it seemed to be calm but the thing is, every way you interpret the behaviour of a snake doesn't work on them, you can judge the behaviour of an elephant or a mouse because they are mammalians like yourself. But a snake is a complete different kind of animal. it might appear calm to you but we are completely unable to read this guys body language and in truth it might be in extreme pain as well.
Its always like that. everyone is over protective aboute little mouses hold into small cages because everyone understands a sad eye and a shaking body but noone cares that millions of fishes daily get CHOKED and die a extremely painful death just because they have no voices and you don't hear them gasp like for exemple a pig would if it would die that way.
I'm really not that animal protective as it might seem now, I'm no vegatarian and stuff, and I sure as hell don't want to turn this thread in such a discussion, I just like to raise people awareness about this when I can and I just want to point out that a snake is extremely noise sensetive, and it is unable to express pain to us.
Don't worry about it! I mean, I didn't even think about this stuff at the time and I'm actually a little glad you bought it to my attention
