Good Bye Romeo!

I AM WRITING THIS IN MEMORY OF MY PASSED BALL PYTHON ROMEO . HE WAS A BEUTIFUL SNAKE BUT ON WEDNESDAY ,JANUARY 15,2003 AT 1:00 PM I FOUND ROMEO WRAPED AROUND HIS HEAT LIGHT ,HE OVERHEATED AND BURNED HIMSELF TO DEATH. THIS WAS MY FAULT FOR PUTING A HEAT LIGHT INSIDE HIS ENCLOSURE . IT IS BECAUSE OF MY STUPIDITY THAT HE IS GONE, IM SORRY BUDDY , I WILL MISS YOU !





GOOD BYE MY FRIEND YOU WILL BE SORLY MISSED!

JAY

I was not going to reply but...why did you have a lamp *in* the tank? I'm really sorry about your loss but I think we'd all like to better understand what happened.

Hey people don't be too hard on him... I may have been a very stupid idea to put a lamp in the tank but I'm sure he didn't do it just to fry the bp.

Jay: I'm sorry to hear about your loss man... just be more careful next time.

I was not trying to be hard on you at all. I was suprised because you have always seemed to know what you are doing. I totally understand that accidents happen. I just wanted to know what happened and now that you've explained it better, I really don't think it was your fault. We've all made mistakes and learned from them. Again, I'm really sorry to hear about your loss, it's tough losing an animal you love.

I'm really sorry for your loss, I can't imagine how you must be feeling... I'd be a mess, so all my sympathies to you.

It's amazing though how stupid these animals can be! To wrap itself around a heat light to the point of burning itself to death. You'd think they'd have some kind of instinct mecanism telling them "it's too hot here, you're burning!". For animals that thermoregulate, you'd think they'd know when it's too hot. Weird.
