Q: What type of mouse is better for pet snakes–frozen or live?

A: Frozen mice are better for snakes than live ones. Live mice can make your snake more aggressive towards people and may also injure or blind your snake if they bite it.

Pet Care Tip of the Day

If you’ve got a pet land hermit crab, make sure that you let any water that you will bathe it in or give it to drink sit out at least overnight. This will allow any chlorine to evaporate, which is important because chlorine can cause blisters on the gills of land hermit crabs (yes, they do have gills, but these are for breathing air. They still must be kept moist, which is why your land hermit crab should be bathed once a week.) The blisters can eventually kill the hermit crab if the chlorine exposure is not corrected. Basically, don’t use any water for your hermit crab that you wouldn’t use for a tropical fish tank.
