Can I feed my snake a dead rat?

Yes, it is generally safe to feed a dead or pre-killed rat to your snake, but you should make sure that the size of the rat is appropriate for the snake and make sure that it has been washed before it is fed.

It is true that most snakes do not eat dead rats, but as a pet owner, it is your responsibility to train them to eat dead rats as dead rats are good for snakes. You can buy dead rats from local stores or online. Below we have provided Amazon's link for you.
