    They are not just snakes. They're garter snakes.

    And I'll add that snakes (and any animal for that matter) will get more energy from it at a lower metabolic cost if it's cooked. A light "nuking" in the microwave will due just fine. They don't seem to care if it's cooked. In fact, if I'm cooking fish in the house, the snakes come out of their hides and go bezerk.

    On the flip side, it does destroy some nutrients and enzymes.

    So does the cons to cooking apply to a light nuke? (how light are we talking?)

    Yes but simply heating most fish to around 140 degrees for just a few seconds pretty much cooks it. If you cook it just until the flesh looks cooked, at the lowest temperature possible, and don't go any further, it may help to not destroy nutrients and enzymes.

    Cooking destroys bad enzymes as well as good ones. It even destroys thiaminase at around 180 degrees. I used to give my concinnus' cooked red snapper (nuked). It doesn't seem to harm them and they like it. There's better choices now of course.

    Re: cooking fish

    That's what confuses me... it does good things, and bad things, is it good to do or not?
