    Last night I found my beautiful Blood Python, Ular, had died.
    Friday night he was fine, Saturday morning he was curled up in his hide as usual, Saturday night he was at full stretch along his vivarium and not reacting to me. It was then I realised he had gone to snakey heaven.
    I still can't quite believe it. He was only 2 years old and such a beautiful boy although he had had problems pooing a couple of months back but he seemed to have got over that.

    RIP Ular

    My 1st sight of him when he 1st came to me to me in Dec 2017

    Thank you. He had problems pooing a few months ago so I think he must have had digestive problems.

    So so sorry, such a beautiful creature and always a tragedy to lose an animal and more so when you have little or no warning, I had a chameleon die a few months back, no signs whatsoever, eating, drinking, then one morning it was clearly not quite normal, an hour later it died, and it leaves you so shocked and confused, when an animal is ill you can treat and react but when it’s so sudden it’s so very hard to understand. I guess on occasion it is just natural, something not right in their bodies that will never know about.
    Such a shame and my thoughts are with you. xx

    Really sorry. That's the trouble with exotics, they can't tell us if there's something wrong. And often, they don't show us that there is something wrong either, or at least not before it's too late.

    He was stunning and obviously an adored pet.
