    RIP Dottie

    Well, i came home from work and noticed a weird smell in the snake room. Checked on everyone and found Dottie had passed away. No idea why as she was fine last week when i had her out. What was weird was the fast she did which was almost 9 months and only eating once during that time. She was active(by ball python standards) and was moving from warm side to cool side inside her hides. I just dont understand as her body looked fine. Anyways RIP Dottie.

    I'm so sorry Sauzo! I remember looking at pictures of Dottie when I first joined the forum and her making me fall in love with pieds! Maybe a necropsy will determine her cause of death?

    Rest in peace sweet girl.

    Thanks all. I had her since she was a little 90g worm about 5 years ago. I got her from Petsmart where she was in a horrible set up and was being assist fed. I got her home and set up and she started eating right away. Anyways she did great and went from the little 12 inch 90g worm to at her last weigh in a couple weeks ago of about 4.5 feet and 1700ish grams iirc.

    I know stuff happens, just sad as she was my second oldest of this bunch. Only one older is Rosey.

    I dont plan to do a necropsy. They are expensive and I'm about 99% sure her death was not due to something contagious. I'll just chalk it up to one of those nature things and i guess it was her time.
