    Well, it's hard to say it but I have recently lost one of my Pythons. SOG my little guy has passed away and I've been left scratching my head. He was doing well and his enclosure had everything right. My temps and humidity were doing well, sheds were awesome and was eating like a horse..... He died while I was at work and I found him stretched out at the bottom of his cage..... I took his little body to the Vet to see if they could find something, but they didn't. As far as she could tell from the test they did he was parasite free..... Maybe it was something they missed but it's really been bugging me because I haven't lost any animals since I was a kid :( I feel like I must have done something wrong but I just can't see what... I'm soooo frustrated failing my little guy, everyone else is doing well and thriving so I really hope it wasn't me :(

    RIP little guy

    Sorry for your loss. If people are as passionate for their reptiles as I am then they are part of the family.

    Stop beating yourself up!
    Sometimes we lose them!
    It may be some birth defect that finally showed itself. It may be some disease that you didn't know about. We can sit here and play what if all night long and it won't change a thing.
    Sometimes unfortunately it just happens.

    Sorry about the lost man. I'm sure you were a wonderful owner and he was a happy snake. Not everything lives forever... He's happy in snake heaven, and eating all the mice and mouses he can! Like i said, I'm sorry for your lost.
