    I just found Luna dead.

    No clue as to why. She was almost a year old. I'm pretty upset. All the rest of my animals appear to be fine. She ate yesterday. She's not even stuff yet but completely unresponsive.

    Sorry for your lose. Only way to know what happened is to pay a Rep Vet to do a necropsy.

    Did you feed live?

    It's always tough I have seen animals dying during feeding (in the middle of constriction) and or within 24 hours and in both cases it was ruptured aneurysm not say it is that but it can be, sometime having a necropsy is a good piece of mind especially when you have other animals.

    So sorry for your loss.

    If you still have the body, refridgerate it and have necropsy done. If your vet will ship it, you can go through them, but that might be more costly than taking it straight to a veterinary diagnostic lab. See if they can test the stomach. I had all of my rainbow boas die from similar symptoms, and when I talked with a representative at the University of Florida, one of the vets there said he's noticed rainbow boas tend to have a strange condition. If your vet will ship, maybe even consider shipping to them! They may be more knowledgeable than a normal vet performing a necropsy.

    It might not 100% show cause of death, but it may give you an idea.
