My hognose python died today. Or maybe it was last night. I don't know. I found her this morning twisted up under her water dish with her jaw open like she couldn't breathe. I knew she was sick, I just didn't know how sick because of how lively she was behaving. She had a mass that I think is cancer and I couldn't get her into the vet fast enough. I can't help but beat myself up for not noticing the mass sooner and getting her in sooner. I keep thinking that if I'd noticed it sooner she would have survived. I keep wondering if I was a bad 'parent' for not noticing.

I lost my other snake around this time last year to illness as well. Only it wasn't cancer but septicemia. She was 8-9 years old. Mora was 9-10 years old.

I don't know if I'll get another snake to fill the holes left by those two. After Lita died I figured that Mora would be enough to fill the hole she had left. I had figured that Mora would be around for a lot longer than just under a year.

My heart is at ease that she isn't suffering anymore and I hope she went peacefully and that the gaping jaw is just something that dead snakes do.

Rest in peace my little sassy girl.
