I was mooching on the reptile forum for piccys of Cornsnakes recently, and there was this person who said she gassed herself when she was culling mice with the co2?Is this possible?If it is im scared for if i have to cull rodents
I can only say that she must have been very special. It's possible of course, but it would take a huge amount of gas as CO2 is heavier than air so it would need to fill a room from the bottom up until it came to nose level. It you're putting the gas in the chamber via a tube then nothing should go wrong.
I did feel a bit out of breath the first couple of times I did it - but that was purely psychosymatic as I get that watching films like Poseidon or that bit in Aliens where they have to swim under water
I love your phrase Sarah, 'special' I agree, it would be difficult to do, and with the small amount you use on a mouse, unless you inhaled the whole lot directly you probably wouldn't do too much harm to yourself. I've never had any problems and I've been using CO2 cartridges for years. I'm still here...
