    The night before last i went to check on my snakes before bed as a i always check on every animal before bed to make sure they're okay i walk down stairs to find that Big Daddy was in an awkward position since he had always greeted me when i walked up to his tank so i immediately opened the lid picked him up to find he was dead i've been crying ever since now only was he my only male and a possible chocolate morph but he was my buddy idk what happened he was in perfect health his humidity and temps were right he never even had so much as a rough shed in my care he always ate (he was over 2,000 grams if that tells you how much of a good eater he was) never so much had a RI or anything he was perfect and beautiful and i havent stopped crying since hopefully he's in heaven now playing with other snakes and having all the rats he could eat i will miss him so much heres a few pictures of him.

    I'm so very sorry for your loss...I know it is never easy to lose a beloved pet, and especially when it happens so unexpectedly.
    Again, I am so sorry for your loss.

    Rest In Peace Big Daddy!

    So sorry to hear that he passed away, hopefully you can find out what was the cause of his death! Maybe a Necropsy is in order?
    Thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.

    thanks everyone sadly i can't afford a necropsy but i've put every reptile that was kept in the same room with him in quarantine just in case he had something spreadable that i didn't know what it was or something like that but everyone is still acting normal
