Unhappy Sad Homecoming...

I've been out of town for work the past 3 weeks and my husband has been caring for the snakes while I was away. Got in at 10pm and doing my check on the creatures discovered one of my Mandarin Rat snakes (small female 2002) desicated and very dead with an empty water bowl. I know my husband feels awful about it. He said he thought I only had 12 snakes and now unfortunately he's right. He totally missed her cage since it was separate from the rack where most of the other snakes are. He's not a bad guy- just made a mistake- but I'm still upset about it. I hate losing an animal to illness but this is worse. A totally preventable death.

RIP little snake! I'm so sorry!!!

So sorry for your husband - he must feel really badly about the situation. It is a very hard lesson for both of you - thanks for sharing as a warning to others.

Sorry for the loss of your little one,

mary v.

Thanks for the sympathy everyone. Lesson learned by both of us hopefully and I'll definitely leave him a check list next time.
