What a loss. Those of you that use a lid on your water dish should take notice of this. I use tupperware or sandwich containers with a hole cut into the center of the lid for water for all my snakes. Well, a very nice grey banded king could not find her way out. I was using the Glad sandwich container for the water dish and had it approx half full with water. The grey band filled it to the top when she submerged in it and could not find her way out and drowned. boohoo!
