    Ugggggh. So sad and so wrong. I hope proper punishment comes to whoever left those poor snakes to die.

    I'd be stoked to have any one of those animals in the family. They're all beautiful.

    That's terrible.
    If you have 4 boas like those and you can't keep them anymore I doubt you're going to freeze them to death. The owner would know the value of them, either to sale them or give them out for free if you're really desperate to get rid of them.
    Something seems off here.

    Yeah, that makes me think they were stolen & then the thief discovered it was too hard to sell them*, or they were afraid of them, or something? *If stolen, it might have been publicized to the extent that the thief knew they'd be caught trying to sell them. Just speculation...it doesn't make it any less tragic though.
    It also could have been a deliberate act resulting from a dispute, with someone trying to punish the snake's rightful owner...something stupid, like a pay-back for
    a drug deal gone wrong or something. Poor snakes.

    Sad story indeed. I doubt any maliciousness was involved.
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Mack The Knife, 2013
    Lizzy, 2010

    1.1 Jungle Carpet Pythons

    0.1 Normal Ball Python, Elvira, 2001
    0.1 Olive (Aussie) Python, Olivia, 2017

    Please excuse the spelling in my posts. Auto-Correct is my worst enema.

    I don't know...there's even been plenty of domestic disputes where one of the parties takes it out on the pets of the other person. Not holding my breath for them to find the truth though.
