you think thats bad? I had a friend who's parents were landlords and they called me in a panic one day. apperently one of there homes they rent was vacant for about 4 months with no heat or electricity in the middle of winter. The last tenants left behind 6 terrariums built into a wall unit like the pet shops have...every one of them was full of snakes! they hadn't had any heat, light, water or food in months!!! I took them all home, fattened them up and bought them better tanks and equipment, now they are part of the family lol. I got 3 ball pythons, a very pretty black snake, a rainbow boa and a ton of garter snakes that I ended up releasing into the woods behind my house. Its a real shame what people will do to some animals that they claim they " love "

I love my clown loaches and red tail shark!!! lol

Wow that is awful! Reptiles are amazingly resilient! I'm glad you were able to rescue them!!! It sounds like they found an excellent home, stories like yours are what keep my faith in the human race as a whole! Thanks for sharing

Snakes *shiver* I dont do snakes EVER but I cant imagine leaving pets like that. I would guess since it was winter that the snakes survived by hibernating as they would in the wild during colder months
I luckily live where there really are NO wild snakes bears coons and coyotes are plenty tyvm. But I am glad that these snakes found a home they are still part of God's creation, and even if they are horibly upsetting to see watch look at or touch they deserve still deserve to survive (just far far away from me)
And yes I have a good reason for not liking snakes, No it isnt all reptiles just a few minor and one major incident involing a 6+ ft (appanently hungry) boa me at the age 6 and a scared look on the handlers face when he saw what the boa was doing. But *twitch* I really didn't let that effect me *twitch*
