....I found my snake today, half-frozen and nealry dead in his tank... Apparently his heat-rock had come unplugged, and I hadn't been checking on him enough, with this whole Lung deal and all.... When I found him, he was limp, his eyes were completely white, and he couldn't even flick his tounge out to smell, he just kind of lolled it out, every so often.... I've brought him into my room and warmed him up, and he seems to be doing somewhat better, but his eyes are still all white...
I'm SO worried about my Basil... I don't know anything about snakes and cold weather, I'm from fucking Florida..... I can't afford to take him to the vet (still worried about how I'm going to make rent THIS month!!). I'm soooo afraid I will lose him... I know it may sound silly to be so attatched to a reptile that doesn't even have emotions, but Basil means the world to me... I would be devistated if anything happened to him....
Does anyone know anything about snakes and the effects of cold? He's a Royal (Ball)Python. What's with his eyes? It's not like he's shedding, and he's showing no other signs that he would be.... Will it go away? Is he permenantly blind now, or something? Anyone??
