Thanks everybody for the comforting words. I do of course work hard to save what can be saved of my agalma collection. I currently have a number of 7 specimen, all but one born 2005. Three of them bred by German breeder Thomas Steffen, and the other three from the U.S. breeder(s) unknown. The seventh snake was imported to Sweden as a hatchling from the U.S. back in 1999 and that snake seems to be unaffected, at least so far.

The first two to show signs of having caught this illness, have been quarantined since early spring and they actually seem a bit better. I have kept them in a large plastic box, very humid and at rather moderate temps. They do not eat however and that of course is a problem.

The large female that died early this summer seemed to have a complete intestinal failure too, slimy stuff coming out of her and the anal section got all swollen and the hind part of her body quite deformed.
