Well, most of those animals are locked into terrariums, so it really shouldn't be that much of an issue..
I'm not having one room for spiders, one for snakes and a seperate room for feeders..

But yeah, rodents shouldn't be in the same room as the snakes, I do agree to that..
We can build a rat-room.. Floor-to-ceiling with toys and shit, much like with the parrots and rabbits..

Just because they CAN, doesn't mean they SHOULD..
Feeder rodents SHOULD be dead and they'd be in a freezer, so yeah.. I guess they could be in the same room as the snakes..
The more you risk of smelling like their food, the more likely you are to be bitten by snakes..

Yes and no..

Some pet snake eats live pray, especially the few first times they eat.. Some just don't take to eating frozen foods..
But the typical pet snake, usually eats rodents that are frozen and thawed..
It is not incouraged to give snakes live pray, especially if you're a newbie.. Simply because the mouse or rat can hurt or even kill the snake.. Rodents are terrifying, guys.. Y'all can Google "snake injuries from eating live pray" on your own free time, but it ain't pretty..

Mostly, people get sent frozen mice or rats in the mail.. They come from people who specilize in breeding feeder rodents and euthanize them humanely.. It's kinda like those food you can get delivered to your door, but for snakes.. This way, you can also get the exact amount and size for your snake..

Russia:
First artificial sattelite.
First complex living being in space.
First lander on another celestial object.
First lander on another planet.
First man in space.
First man in orbit.
First spacewalk
First woman in space.
First photograph of the far side of the moon.
First remote rover on another celestial body.
US:
First manned circumlunar flight.
First manned landing on the moon.

Given these facts, it becomes VERY clear that Russia won the space race.

Yeah

And if you do choose live prey, you gotta be there the whole time.

But Lenny is right, frozen is safer
