You can offer these prey alive or dead. Although it is more practical to let them get used to dead prey. It sometimes happens that the food animal injures your snake. If you go for live food you will have to stick with it while feeding your snake. In addition, remove the snake from the accommodation and with a food tong, so that unnecessary injuries are prevented. If they are held together, it is wise to take them apart during feeding. It sometimes happens that the snakes catch the same prey or catch each other and this can lead to unnecessary injuries.

In addition, ventilation is needed to keep the air fresh and it is advisable to set up the stay out of the bright sun and as vibration-free as possible.
