Tonight’s post is a little gruesome and sad, so I apologize for it up front.
When we first got our pet snakes, I asked my fiancee how we would know if one of them died, since they don’t seem to have eyelids and when they sit still for days on end, they seem almost not to be alive. Well, today I found out what a dead snake looks like. It looks dead. Though yes, the eyes are still open, they’re sunken in to the head and somewhat glazed over. The body looks like dead weight. It seems like it’s not holding itself up, but rather filled with sand.
