    Good work!

    I'm sure with the proper sized prey you'll have him at around 18 feet by fall LOL!

    I'm honestly shocked this snake sat out on the side of a highway and didn't get snatched up by an eagle or anything. Then to get seen and rescued by someone that actually cares about animals even if she didn't have a clue what to do and who thought it might be a retic! She brought me a sweet thank you card and $20 with him, I showed her some of my snakes and setups so she could see proper care and a healthy one.

    Little Roger is finally under a hide and resting today, I got up right away this morning to make sure he was still with us. There was brown fluid stained under him on the paper yesterday but I wasn't sure if it was seepage or just wet from the previous bedding. Must have just been the latter, the new paper was still dry and clean today.

    Roger eagerly took a small damp mouse last night so fingers crossed. Definitely a will to live on this one.

    Re: Found on the road rescue

    He's doing really well, seems strong and lively for how he looks and his size. I'm going to offer another mouse tonight but he looks a lot better just with one in him and the hydration I'm sure he desperately needed, scale says he's only 10 grams heavier but the moisture has made a huge difference. His belly and scales still look weird but hopefully a shed will take care of that and chances are he'll head into one soon. He didn't pass anything at all from his first meal yet but that's to be expected I would think. Certainly doesn't look uncomfortable or bloated at all.

    That's FANTASTIC news! Some of the things that snakes survive just amazes me- it's why I'd rather have a rescued snake than one I just bought from life on "easy street".

    Re: Found on the road rescue

    Well Roger started shedding off some of his stuck shed on his own, I gave him a short soak last night. He got the rest off and peed heavily overnight so I had to take him out for cleaning and while he looks tons better, he's got a skin rip.

    Slipped skin disease was one of my big worries too. My other concern is he's a bit bulgy at the end but maybe he'll poop in a day or two. I'll have to do some major reading today and call the vet, I seem to recall snakes with this might need vitamin supplementation to help heal? It's a fairly minor injury right now but I've seen how awful it can get.

    Re: Found on the road rescue

    Thanks again for all you're doing for this little guy. I'm confident that in your care he'll make a full recovery.

    It just occurred to me that one benefit from taking in rescues is that you get experience dealing with health issues that people that take proper care of their pets will never see. While their care is costly, the experience you get is invaluable. If one day, I have the resources I may take in a rescue myself.
