Aside from the assumed monetary value of the prey animal, how is this any different than feeding it a mouse or a roach? Monitors are predators, and generally eat anything they can catch. If the owner of the ackie wants to spend extra money for a "fancy" meal, thats his prerogative. Remember that many people keep rats and mice as pets. I'm sure they feel the same way about us feeding rodents to snakes as any gecko owner would seeing this video. Circle of life, folks.

When I worked at petsmart, I had a customer who came in to buy neon tetras for his cichlids. Not exactly something I would do, but who am I to tell people how to spend their money?

Bottom line: anyone who has ever fed a live rodent or a live insect to any herp doesn't have any room to squawk.
