Nah if they don't like snakes they won't vote for her anyway. Not when she's up against Zik's adorably cute hamster :lol:
Go for gross!! That's what I would do anyway! It's an awesome action shot and that jaw is amazing.

OK, I can't edit my post :( But I switch mine round. The action shot of her eating is the Entry and the tongue shot is the Verification.

what is it eating anyway???
(i am not a snake fan!)

Mouse. This is why I wanted to keep the "cute" picture as my entry but I don't know now because I do prefer the Action Shot of her eating but I know not everyone likes that... Even some people who are Snake fans will find it disgusting what they eat :/

Stick with your current entry, whilst i love feeding shots, a LOT of people might find it uncomfortable or intolerable. You know that I want more people to understand what it is we enjoy! But without wanting to push understanding and aceptance of keeping snakes and what they eat etc, but as reptile keepers... we need to understand that shock factor is not what people need to encourage them.

It is a good shot, but one you need to be careful where you flash about before you start getting people worried about what you are up to
we have awesome people like Chris Newman fighting for the hobby, dont let some misunderstanding animal rights person get hold of what you post and twist it eh...

I didn't like it too much tbh, I used to keep dumbo rats and mice and it freaked me out a bit.

That's a shame, because I would vote 1. snake feeding 2. hamster 3. turtle 4. snake tongue
But if you're worried about offending people, maybe it's best to take it down completely.

I wasn't offended, I suppose it can shock a bit if someone has ever formed an emotional bond with an animal and then seeing it being fed to another animal.

I know. Right I have decided. My entry is going to be the tongue shot. This is a final decision.
