    Oh no! That's awful! I don't think it's anything you did or could have done...I agree with the others that a necropsy would be a good idea, especially because if he died of something contagious you'd need to wait a while before replacing (and do a very thorough sanitizing) so that any other reptiles do not contract the same thing. What lousy luck, I'm so sorry...but I'm very suspicious that he was not healthy when you got him. Rest in peace little one... Any sort of guarantee from the seller? If you do a necropsy & find out it was something serious & contagious, you need to be talking w/ them.

    (sorry I got here so late! I've been really busy with yard work today)

    Thank you all for your kind words and advice, I really do appreciate it.
    Unfortunately I put his body in a freezer soon after he died, before I saw any responses about the necropsy, is it too late?

    I'm afraid so...freezing destroys evidence needed for tests. Disinfect, disinfect & disinfect some more... poor little snake, I was looking forward to your updates on him-
    these are typically healthy snakes- at least all the w/c ones I've known were. Did he have any sort of mid-body swelling? Anything you could feel, maybe?

    Agh that's too bad, wish I hadn't acted so quickly I'm definitely on top of disinfecting, I don't want any chance of my other snake getting sick, I'm not sure I could take that. He seemed healthy for the whole time I had him, though granted I only handled him once or twice for weighing and a quick look over, never felt any lumps or anything
