    Excellent write-up Brad and thanks for the pics. I always need to see things myself to totally understand a written explanation.

    Yes! Exposure to a high concentration of CO2 can actually be painful and cause respitory distress. If you allow the buildup to gradually increase, it is an anesthetic at low concentrations, and by the time the CO2 builds up to a deadly concentration, the rats are in La-La Land.

    Just letting you know that I've passed on the link to this thread to a few reptile groups that I think may be happy to see this info!

    Re: Feeder Euthanasia the Easy Way, and Humane too...

    I only really have 2 things to add. By priming the container with Co2 (adding the dry ice before the prey), you will decrease the amount of time from 2 minutes to 10-20 seconds for them to fall asleep. It will also decrease the amount of time they need to be in there ... mine are normally dead within 2 minutes ... even for 12 lb rabbits.


    Rigid plastic like Iris tubs and the kritter keepers crack easily when exposed to cold. For this reason I usually recommend a softer tupperware type container.

    Re: Feeder Euthanasia the Easy Way, and Humane too...

    So if you used tupperware Bryan you'd just melt a ton of holes in it would you to allow the gases to seep out? Quick question about this method is it safe to do inside the house as long as the room is ventilated or is it safer to be done outside?
