    I hope so too. I find that both individulaly owned reptile shops and fish shops uaually only have 2 day quantees (or at least the ones in my area do). Other than that, he's been great and I have learned allot of my experience from him (and you guys of course :))

    It just really irritates me. I had wanted one for a long time and finally got one and then... this...

    Oh no! I'm so sorry Kernel. I was hoping for the best last night. He was such a cutie. I really do hope everything works out with you and the owner of the pet store. RIP Ebony.

    Well, I took him to the pet store to see what he thought and he said it looks like he has broken ribs cause he's all flattened out close to the neck (he wasn't like that when I put him in the fridge). He's going to have the vet do a necropsy and will let us know what he finds out. He didn't offer to give a refund, store credit or anything, but I'm hoping he will after he gets the results of the necropsy.

    So sorry for your loss! I'm hoping the best turns out after the vet looks him! Surely something was already wrong with him. :(

    Oh I'm so sorry for you and ebony. Its worse that he gave you the thought that he might make it. I'm sorry for your loss and Ebony will be missed. Sorry he didn't make it *hug*

    Got the results of the necropsy and they couldn't find anything. They did find a few broken ribs (I'm stumped as to how that would have happened, unless it happened when he regurged), but he said they were non life threatening. So, now I'm left with more questions and absolutely no answers. The reptile shop owner is going to get in touch with the breeder and see if he can work something out. Hopefully I will get my refund, but I have no idea if I will or not.

    That is really sad and also SO frustrating not knowing what killed him.
