Ah, so sorry to hear that. I hope your monitor is doing alright now.
If it makes you feel any better I probably would have done the same, I too wouldn't know what to do in a situation like that. It was just a fluke so don't beat yourself up about it. Too bad the snake didn't make it but I hope your savannah is alright. And try not to let it ruin your entire week end.
My thoughts are with you. Deb.
