Survived I did, but only because that caiman got some sort of disease and rotted away. If it had grown to about 5 feet long I probably wouldn't have survived.

That "dinner" thing for the snakes gets tough. Lost a feeder mouse in my car, had stopped for snake food and the pet store had them in a Chinese takeout carton. The dratted thing ate through the carton and ran all over the car. Never did find it----alive. :eek:
