    :( :( Sad to report that Iggy, our baby Ball Python, passed away thismorning. We have no idea what happened. She was fine yesterday and we noticed last night she was a bit lethargic and laying flat with her head raised (possibly stargazing disease). We just can't beleive how fast this progressed. She was eating on a regular basis and seemed as healthy as can be til last night,,,then in less than 12 hrs she was gone. :( :(

    Thanks Rachel,,,,unfortunately KJ doesn't know yet,,,,he's working now and so am I,,,mom is home and she just called me to break the bad news. Looks like wer'e having a funeral for a friend tonight. There's a big tree in my backyard that KJ loves to climb so I'm thinking of the burial sight directly under it. This is our first snake death and the sorrow I feel now is such a downer. I hope he's in a better place.

    I'm so sorry to hear that Ken.. it makes it worse that you don't know what was the cause. Iggy will be over that rainbow bridge with the other herps that have left us.. It's nice that you can have a funeral - it will hopefully help the kids say goodbye and lay Iggy to rest. Such sad news.. Big hugs xx

    Hi Ken-

    Sorry to hear about your poor snake. As mentioned the worst part is when you have no idea what happened.

    Have you considered getting a necropsy done? It can help answer those questions and possibly save other snakes down the road.

    Our thoughts are with you and the family.

    Thanks to all of you. Dom,,,,I considered it but KJ wanted no part of that, We placed him in a nice decorated box and burried him in the back yard,,,said a prayer and hope better things to come

    My sympathies

    So sorry to hear about Iggy, Ken. I wish you and your family all the best.

    It was Iggy's time. He's in a better place but he'll still live on here too, in your hearts and memories.
