Wow. That's kinda crazy. We have pet stores here (Arizona, USA) that sell live feeders - fish, mice, rats, crickets, worms, etc. It would be difficult to find feeder bunnies or hamsters - basically seems to be if it's overly cute, they won't sell it as food lol I have seen people ask pet stores if they have any mean rodents they can buy for their snake and the petstores usually oblige, which makes sense on the aspect that it's not going to be a very good pet. Either way, that would suck for ball pythons because they usually won't take frozen unless starving, and sometimes not then.
Do you know what is the reasoning behind that regulation? How do they regulate what is your purpose with an animal? For example, what keeps you from going to a different store and buying fish as feeder without mentioning what it's for? Just curious.
