    If the mouse is alive it could be bad, if it's a F/T no it won't hurt anything, but it does look weird. I have a boa that absolutly insists that eating it backwards is the only way to eat it!!!

        No, like I said, it's only bad if you feed live!!!

          Well even if you feed live it is no problem do to the fact that most snakes kill there prey before eating it... So what evil was saying is it the mouse is alive when the snake is in fact swallowing it then this can be bad do to the fact that the mouses head is the last thing to go down and it can scratch and bite the snake before it is down the hatch...

            Some snakes will do this at times, nothing to really worry about. However, it can also be a sign that you may need to step up the prey size, but that is not always the case.

              What is worse is I just got some baby ball pythons.
              2 of them ate their fuzzy mouse but first.
              tha bad part was they were not totally dead yet.
              I felt so bad.
              Just imagine being gobled up by something.
              I am sure the mousies felt terrified.
              Oh well.

                It definately won't harm the snake sucking it down backwards, but may be uncomfortable. I find that Kingsnakes are the big culprits of eating weird. I had a Cali-King that would eat them sideways. b31.gif

                    He would get them from the side and fold them over as he sucked them down. It looked very painful!

                        Fluffy has been known to eat a mouse or two backwards, it just takes a little longer to get it down, but it won't hurt the snake.
                        I have always wanted to snap a picture of it, though, its really weird seeing it!
                        Fluff has also tried to take a couple sideways. that really takes a while to get down. Since I have moved up to a larger size prey though, It hasn't happened. Maybe an idea.

                          The only possible problem with them eating backwards is the legs can cause younger snakes without the better strength to regurge. That is rare though.

                              I am hoping to catch a picture when you can only see the mouse head in fluffy's mouth! It's actually quite funny in a warped kinda way!
