it was limp and didn't move much!!!!!LOL.....that is a VERY clear indicator that a snake is on it's way out!!. Probably being kept just like I mentioned in my above post....If a snake feels strong with some muscle tone, and moves around as you hold it, the odds are it is fairly healthy. Stay away from the very inactive, limp ones........it's pretty upsetting how some people treat animals..........My motto is,...."if you can't take care of it, you have no business owning it".........also,...when you acquire a new snake(especially wholesalers/importers) make sure you look at the gap around the eyes, underneath in between the scales on the throat, as well as the body for mites(black dots) and ticks, as these are very bad for the snake...anyway,...good luck,....................................................Doug
