    Diesel passed peacefully this evening in his enclosure, likely due to old age (yes, a necropsy will be performed, just to be sure). For those of you who aren't familiar with Diesel, he was my rescued Argentine boa. His estimated age was between 25 and 35 years old, although there is no real way of knowing.

    Goodbye, Diesel, I will miss your grumpy attitude.

    Thanks for the kind words. His body was dropped off this morning. When the time comes, he will be buried on my property.

    Yes! I'm picking up the report and his ashes after work today. (I had him cremated.) There was nothing unusual in the necropsy except a bit of thickening around his lungs.

    Well he did have a lot of years on him. He probably did past as you had said from his age. Again BB sorry for your loss, hope you find a nice peaceful place for his ashes.
