I went this evening and picked up a couple of rescue snakes. 3ft Burm who proceeded to bite at me and **** and **** all over me. Oh joy the aroma on the ride home! (boyfriend went to jail and she doesnt know how long he will be gone and she wasnt about to touch the snakes) It was a little funny. She said she had one two hoodies, gloves and oven mills to pick up the Ball yesterday. The Ball is all of 18 inches long. ;)

The second snake is a young Ball Python who had escaped 3 months ago and crawled out from underneath the stove yesterday. She has lovely burns down her entire back, her tail is nubbed off below the cloaca and there are a few spots on her that look like she was wrapped around a pipe and burned that are healing over. Her back muscles are exposed. All of the scales are gone. I plan to re-evaluate her tomorrow and go from there. Here are a few pics of her.

:(:( Poor Baby. Looks like she is a fighter. From the pictures, looks like if she's been loose for three months she was eating well. She steals your heart with what she has gone thru. There are only a few snakes that I would open my home for, but she is certainly one. I really hope you can save her.

As I read your first paragraph I giggled to myself, gloves and oven mitts indeed - I like snakes.
Then as I continued reading I found I had tears streaming down my face and my heart sank. What a terrible thing. My heart goes out to you for your kindness to these lovely creatures and to that young Ball Python who has endured such tragedy already. I have no doubt you will do what is best for it.
Please keep us updated.

I plan to give her a chance and see if she responds. I feel she is in good weight and overall looks healthy despite her injuries. If in a week or two she doesnt seem to be responding or I feel she is going down hill I will then euthanize her.

Anja, if she does make it and you decide to put her up for adoption, would you let me know?

Never asked, other than a bad attitude what kind of shape was the other snake in?

We all three just met up in person 2 weeks ago! lol You would think we had been friends forever, guess our personalities just mesh together well. ;)

Thanks for the compliments on Legend's name. :) Sometimes he hates it, but then again so did I as a kid with my name. He will feel differently when he is grown. lol

Nope didnt run into anymore Amish buggies, that tripped me out. I had not seen one in so long and at first thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. There were two big Does standing in the middle of the road close to my house though. Luckily I saw them way ahead of time and slowed down.

Tracy if we came to your house, you'd probably have a leopard go missing when we left! :p and dude, I don't cook either! that is the worst form of torture for me! LOL!

Yah Anja, I think he'll LOVE his name when he grows up!!! I've always aspired to give my kids interesting and unique names, but haven't had a chance to name most of my kids (I have girls with middle nams Eowyn (from LOTR) and Shayde)... I had free reign on my youngest and ended up naming him after family so that was pretty boring! LOL!
