You know, now that I sit down, relax and start to think, I realize how stupid I was in seeking the source of this ball python, or where it was from. Who is to say that one of the boa constrictors is the source of the IBD, and it just managed to be transferred to the ball python recently?
I think what should be done now is the person with this case of IBD, snakelovers, should sit down and think. Think of all the people they have baught snakes from. Think of all the reptiles they have come in contact with. At this point, inform all these people what has happened, and to keep an eye out on their animals.
