I don't think Koda is a normal. I think he's a flame kenyan. I saw some at the show today. They're yellow like that.

Tyler...slide your fingers around the neck of the mouse with one hand and make sure you can feel the bones in the skull and jaw. the grip the body with the other hand and give it a sharp tug with both hands and you should hear a crack as the neck breaks.

Or whack it over the back of the head with the handle of a screwdriver. Depending on how hard and where you hit it will determine that it's either brained of stunned.

Hopefully once you have changed over to prekilled you should have no probs going to frozen.

It doesn't take much to kill a rodent. I used to hit them in the head with some blunt object, but that can get bloody. Now I just hold them by the tail and slam them up against the walll, depending on how hard they hit, it will either stun them, knock them out, or kill them. I'm sure there are easier methods, but that's just what I do. My boa is spoiled and I hand feed her, so I try to avoid the mess of blood shed if I can.

Yeah, I can't break their necks with my hands...
I wear thick leather gloves, and even so, I have a hard time holding them by the tail... Disgusting little creatures! And usually by the time I get them home and the snakes ready to eat, the damn vermin have already poo'd and urinated all over themselves.

I dont think i could kill a pinky with any of those methods... I cant even kill a worm...

I think il just try F/T again and maybe thaw it out in a hot cup of water with chicken ramen noodle flavoring. i heard that works sometimes...
