A Hiccup In The Food Chain

| Los Angeles, CA, USA | Uncategorized

(I was working in the reptile department and I often got questions about the snakes.)

Customer: “What do you feed these snakes?”

Me: “Those snakes?¬†Usually feeder mice.”

Customer: “You feed them live mice?”

Me: “Yes, that’s what they eat.”

Customer: Well, don’t you think that’s cruel?”

Me: “…”

Customer: “Can’t you feed them a vegetarian diet?”

Me: “No ma’am, they need to eat a diet similar to what they would naturally eat in the wild.”

Customer: “Well, I think that’s just awful.¬†They should be able to survive on vegetables.”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am…you’ll have to talk to God about that one.”
