Hello All,

So I think this post will be to late but hopefully the replies will help with any future problems. About 2 weeks ago I purchased a pair of hatchling cal kings. Both were doing great and ate about a week ago. I looked in on them this morning and one of them did not look right. It was moving strangely and looked stiff. I noticed three small brown spots on the snake one by the head and the other two on the body. This evening when I check on him, he was on his back twisting around. I took him out and looked at him and his body started contorting. He then went limp. I have only seen this once before in a yearling hognose I had about 10 years ago. I lost him and never knew what the problem was. Can anyone help? I am worried because I have several other snakes and I don't want them to be exposed if it is something contagious. Thanks everyone!
