I'm sorry Larry.

Edit: I just looked them up and discovered that they have the quickest strike of any snake in the world. I found that interesting, but scary.

Not only that but they can strike in just about 180 degrees. They don't even have to be coiled necessarily to strike at you. Making them very unpredictable. They are slow and lethargic otherwise, but that is what makes them dangerous. People can get very complacent very quickly and that is the mistake people make. Other than that they are a gorgeous species and a prime example of convergent evolution in animals. They are very unique amongst elapids as they share many characteristics of viperids. I'm really sad he died.

Im really sorry. Was he acting weird at all? Last week mine was. He was really active and trying to climb up the walls of his cage. Now though he is back to being partially buried. What i find scary is that with the edb's they strike and the rat goes off to die. With my adder he strikes and doesn't release, then he swallows when the mouse stops twitching.

he was acting a bit weird, moving around more than usual. but then he started getting a bit emaciated, but was eating regularly. Not sure what happened. A few days ago I had bought a live mouse from petco and did not realize until the mouse was in the snake's mouth that it had a prolapse. So I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it, but it appears that things started going down hill after that.

I got the snake 4 years ago and he was a full grown adult, but I'm not sure how old he was when I got him.

Well, it is a sad day for me too. My male panther chameleon started looking bad a few days ago and died today. He went down hill so fast there was nothing i could do. You may remember him, he was in the pic of the month a few months back. I'll miss him. He was one of the colest pets I ever enjoyed.

They say this stuff happens in threes, so iam the third. Someone hit my cat last night. He was a typical cat always fighting, sleeping or playing. He was almost 14 been in a fight with a fox, Brought his prize bird catches home alive so we could see them and so he could watch us rematch them. Over all he was a *** of a cat but I'll miss him anyway.
