Last October I purchased a very unique '09 blond male suboc that what 100% het for both blond and albino but had an really light coloration to him (lighter than I had ever seen anyway). He was the culmination of my immature breeding group of which I already had females for to try my luck at triple homozygous. Anyway within about 2 hrs of him arriving he was strong enough to push open the rack he was temporarily in.

The garage got torn apart. Everything stored in the I moved out in a frantic search for him. I had friends come over and help me and even offered them a reward if they spotted him. From October to 4/20 the snake was nowhere to be found. I gave up hope and was really bummed and knew it would delay my first year of breeding for the triple.

Then tonight as my mother is walking into my garage she just screams "Ahhhh! James, James, come quick". Usually this scream is when she sees a mouse or rat. So I come running down, by this time she has yelled something about a snake. I charge in and am thinking which one could have escaped. Then I see the size of it and immediately know, today was my lucky day. The rain outside must have made it come out of hiding. I was and am ecstatic, 7 months gone and fingers crossed maybe not any worse for wear.


I set it up immediately at about 78 cold side and 90 degree hot side tub. I will try to feed him in a couple days which will give me an idea of how he is doing. Has anyone had experiences like this? Did the snake need to go to the vet? What can I do the make sure he is healthy (ie, water bath,mite treatment, panacur, etc? ?
