seemed painful. What could have caused this and are the other two
snakes that were with him at risk?
Symptoms, He was a small snake about 5 months old but not very
much bigger than when I got him. He would eat like a pig, hold it a
couple of days and then give it back to me. This had gone on for a
couple of months. His neck, just below the head, turned a reddish
color (trauma from another snake?). Just about an hour ago he went into
what I would call a convulsion and then went limp. He kept breathing
for a while and then just stopped.
I feel really badly that I didn't know what to do.
Do you think he starved to death? He kept eating and I assumed
at least some of it was going down. And too I have heard of snakes
going several months not eating though this snake was young. If you
have any insight into what happened let me know... I'll miss him.
