Melinda- This brings up an interesting point for me personally.
We had snakes for awhile and we finally rehomed them.
We could not find a reliant, quality food supply for them. Since snakes are rodent eaters, and sustain themselves on whole food- you just cannot swap out the rodents for chicken or fowl.
I am conflicted about this now, years later- feel bad for the mice, certainly the ones people would consider pets- but not sure what else to feed a snake.
Anyway, snakes went to a reptile zoo where they have their own breeding program.
Glad that your pets did not become snake food though. Hope they find a nice home. It wasn't nice of those people to be tricky.
