Sad Afternoon..

For thos that know (the fish joey, james179, and a few others) i aquired a lost snake.. But this snake was very small and not eating.. She has been at a reptile specialist for 6 weeks.. We went to get her today, and when we got to the reptile section we were informed that she sadly passed away last night..
R.I.P saphire.
the guys there were so sorry they gave me a eveglade cross fourline rat snake to my mums dissmay, but this snake would get to 7ft and the size of a coke can.. We will come to that in a few years.
but it doesnt take away the fact that saphire has now gone to a happy place after suffering from a internal diseas..#R.I.P Saphire the amazing snake..

That's a shame, I'm sorry. You did your best for her - it's sad that it wasn't enough.

I'm so sorry to hear about Sapphire. Here's a hug ( )


Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Oh my goodness im soo sorry for not seeing this yesterday even though i was on for like 12 hours!i feel soo sorry for you!i was really happy when you found sapphire,and now im acualy very happy that you got another snake,i know you wont be attached to him/her as much as you were to sapphire (i know i wont :( )
you did the right thing taking sapphire to the vet,and having the patience to wait 6 weeks to get her (him?) back.

Best wishes ,
James



btw:what kind of snake was sapphire

p.s.-call me James :)

You should put Sapphire in your signature
