  • Momma Passed....

    Well just an update, The momma thats litter had some complications in side her and had an infection passed about 3 hrs ago. What makes this absolutely hard is she was my first boa. The most docile boa I ever had and an absolute sweet heart.
    Just one thing I would like to reinerate is that when I first got into boas and absolutely loved everything about them I kept reading where if you really consider a boa a part of the family, and care for it then the best thing to do is not breed it do to the fact that you can lose it and it does happen often. Well I have to say I completely understand now exactly what I kept reading.
    So if any of you can learn from this it is very true if you breed them there is a chance of losing them even if they are in perfect health and everything is kept at optimal settings.

          Oh man I'm sooooooo sorry. It's always hard to loose a loveing pet. Even harder because of the outcome. I'll pray that you find comfort.

            Sorry to hear that. My first snake was a het Albino bp. First time I ever tried breeding anything and her first time being bred. She became egg bound and died so I know it is hard especially when you lose your first.

                  I am very sorry man. Words can never help ease the pain of a passing family member regardless if it is just a snake. Keep her memory alive.

                  I send my condolences.

                      Man Eddie I am really sorry to hear that. It is a tough loss. I lost a female in breeding 2 years ago. It is always tough but even more so when they are the beloved pet.

                        That's a tragedy, Eddie. I'm very, very sorry for your loss.

                          That is awful. I'm very sorry. I'll be the first to admit that only blind optimism lets me press forward with my breeding plans. If I really believed that something like what you had to go through could happen to me I don't think I could pursue this.

                              What a double whammy, sorry to hear.... I keep this in my mind all the time that they can die, and it makes it a lot more nerve wracking..

                              As I have also lost a few snakes in the last half year I can totally understand your feelings. Time will heal these wounds, and hopefully time will bring you a successful litter for your troubles.
