Does the animal need to be alive to be consumed? I guess I'm just sorta freaked out by it. Unless it's necessary, then why not just feed them a dead animal?
That depends on the animal. Some will know it's dead and will refuse to eat. My snake isn't very picky and will eat frozen-thawed mice (which I switched to after hearing the mouse shrieking). It also is just sometimes easier to give them live stuff, but potentially dangerous (for example, if the mouse is old enough to have teeth, it can kill the snake if not killed/eaten quickly enough).
