      That sucks man..it has happened to me a couple times. A few years ago I lost 4 baby ATBs and this year I lost 4 or 5 baby boas due to bad feeders that most of the litter regurged.

              Mike so sorry to hear about this, which boas did you lose if you don't mind me asking.
              The jungle I got at the last narbc show I lost and it is emotionally trying on you.
              Just know it happens to us all. I know when it happen to me I kept being hard on myself as if there was something more I could have done but sometimes it just happens.
              Where with you brother.

                  I'm sorry to hear that bro. It does happen bro, even to the best of us. It's just part of the game of keeping wild animals captive in our home. If you keep boas long enough you're gonna lose a few along the way.

                  I'm not making light of it. I just want you to know it wasn't your fault and reassure you that you ARE a good keeper bro.

                      I'm sorry to hear this Mike.

                      It does happen, unfortunately. But two at once is a heck of a blow.

                      I hope the one who regurged is ok after this.

                      You have my sympathies.

                            Wow Mike. That is really crappy. I am soo sorry that you lost some snakes. Try to have a good Christmas even though it will be hard with this weighing on your mind.

                              That's really awful, sorry to hear about this. It's odd that it happened to two totally different sized snakes, i.e. not from the same batch/bag of rats. I would probably toss everything in the freezer and look at a new supplier if I were in your shoes.
