    Not really anything too big,i just wondered for the ppl feeding f/t stuff-do the snakes try to constrict much before eating or do they realize that the prey is already dead when they see it not moving much(or at all )and just swallow it directly?

    They hold it there for a few minutes, some longer than others, just like if they were killing it.

    Basically it is all in the instict of constriction. How do we know when it is safe for us to swallow our food after chewing it? We just sense it.

    Hope I helped.
