I don’t expect any sort of compensation, like you said, long past that point. As for a necropsy, I see what you mean, but I’ve heard it’s quite expensive, like $300. I’d spend that kind of money or more to save a snake that still has a chance, but for a necropsy that would be quite a hit to my finances. I hope you understand. Thanks again for your thoughts.
Necropsies are usually really good for closure, insight and answers (what, why, possible prevention, assessing risk of housing another snake in the same cage even after thorough cleaning) but sometimes they offer very little answer, and I totally 100% understand where you're coming from, you don't have to justify yourself.
