I do not think, we are looking at this in the same way, you want to rationalize why you do it and I am saying, its proven to feed whole prey items.
Which means, a deer would be fine if it was consumed whole.
These type animals do not require a varied diet and for that reason, all they need is in WHOLE prey items.
Also, its not harmful to feed them some deer meat. I would question doing so at this time, when she is between clutches. At this time, I would think you would do what is best. So far, whole prey items have a proven history of that term, best.
Anyway, just sayin, you surely can do what you want.
Now to be sure, we all have our things. Our clutter, our prejudices, our rationalizations. And I am clearly prejudiced by the results whole prey items have expressed. Across the board from small monitors to large. And with extremely fast growth and heavy reproduction. So yes, I am prejudiced.
If you sit down and think about this, who is this for, You perhaps???
