    With 20 or more BP's in a tank, who knows how many were sick.

    How is this disease transmitted?

    Our laboratory has found virus in the oral/nasal cavity, lungs, and feces. Therefore, transmission is thought to occur by direct or indirect exposure to respiratory secretions (similar to the common cold) or to feces from infected snakes.

    RIP Freya & Ghost

    Definitely buy from a reputable breeder and avoid little reptile stores and Craigslist rehomes. Iíve lucked out with Craigslist and picked up some nice pythons, but it is a major risk and Iím never doing it ever again, to avoid possible infections.

    Iím so sorry you had to go through this, but on the positive side, you learned some important lessons.
    Btw, there are quite a few breeders here in the forum that can provide you with snakes, or point you in the right direction to another breeder that has what you are looking for.

    I'm so sorry for your loss! As others have mentioned, it sounds likely they were both sick when you brought them home and there was no way for you to know that. We all make mistakes and you guys sound like great keepers who are working to learn the best ways of keeping your animals healthy. No one could ask more of you!

    Very sorry your first experience was a heartbreaking one!

    I would never wish the experience on anyone else, but it truly has made be a better keeper, and a little bit nuts about husbandry (to the point of obsession). I'm always checking temps and humidity, doing as much research as I can. My new girl ate her first meal on Sunday like a champ and seems to be settling in very nicely. Hoping for a nice, long, healthy life for her (and our future snakes, because you know you can't just have one).

    Lol my reasoning for having two was that I can alternate what days I hold them so I can grab a snake any day of the week. Now my excuse for the next ones are, well I just love them. Lol
