    It's better not to keep any frozen rodents, be they pinkies or jumbo rats, more than 3 months because after that the tissue begins to break down and nutritional value is lost.
    Best to order/get a months supply at a time, then re-order.
    Also depends on space available in freezer. Keeping them in a sealed tub is also a good idea, stops any contamination and also prevents "freezer burns", especially pinkies.

    Other than snakes, I can't think of an animal they are good for.

    It's good to feed them to leo's if they have laid eggs etc or as a treat for the calcium. Once a month or so. I have 3 leos. So was thinking about it.
