What do you think of pets (like snakes) being fed live "prey"? Is it okay because, if in the wild, it would go down the same way (ending in the death of the prey)? Or is it cruel and mean?

I think it depends on the animal. I have a corn snake and used to give her live prey because she's a constrictor and would kill it first. Then I seen her eating and realized that she was swallowing it live (while it squealed and freaked out). So yeah if it's going to die a slow, painful death, I think pre-killed is better.
I can't think of a good signature.
