    Wow, did the vet say how this sort of condition happens?? Just curious. My prayers are with you and your snake at this scary time. Fingers crossed for a good outcome.

Vet told us it would be experimental if we did decide to go through with surgery but he really wanted to try. So against all odds we did it 2500 dollars later and submission to vet journals Gamin slowly healed. We began feeding again after 6 months and he has seemed happy as a clam ever since

    This is the first time I've seen this thread but still appreciate the update, especially since the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw your photos was "tumor"-
    but it's just amazing that it grew so large so quickly. Better late than never- Glad your snake had a good outcome, that's awesome.
    Many friends in low places...

    Amazing people if you happen to be in North Cali I have since moved to Sacramento and am yet to find someone as caring as there guys. Worst part of my move was losing access to these guys. If you know any one closer to Sacramento let me know
