    It was feeding day for my snake again. So i took a rat out of the freezer and put it in hot water. After a while the water was cooled down and i poured new hot water over the rat. Most likely this made the rat to thaw to fast and you can see the result in the next pics.
    When i put the rat in the enclosure it was all fine, but once it got tagged by Spot (my snake) the rat popped. Was really nasty to see, but Spot succeeded in getting all of it down the throat..................*just another EEWW warning*

















    Here spot allready started eating and you can see that it wasnt a pleasant sight

    The rat itself was almost gone, but the inside was still hanging around

    And this was the last thing i saw of the rat, was just a few seconds and all of it was gone.

    Thanks for looking

    Thanks you very, very much for the warning.
    It prepared me well.
    After that, I could look at these.
    I agree: the sight is not nice.
    But since this is what ends in Spots eventually, anyway, rat intact or rat popped open by a too quick defrosting method, I can live with the sight.

    hehe i prefer the non popped though. The smell is disgusting. But you are right, its still the same food item.
