Yeah, it's possible the heat contributed to the situation, so I will be extra cautious in the future. Two different herpers have told me that empty ice chests make good insulating containers for transporting snakes during inclement weather. (Of course, the lid must be lifted occasionally during long trips.) I do not want a repeat, whether or not regurgitation was the final blow.
It still saddens me greatly.
And yes, the Arizonas are great. I spent a few hours last night setting up an acceptable home for them. Today I have to an appropriate heat source for both of them.
I need to get some nice pictures of the male. He's lovelier than any picture I've seen.
