At 7" long your russian was not a baby anymore. In fact it was probably almost a full grown adult. The fast rate of death might be because the animal was overstressed and dehydrated from being imported, or was in very very poor health (and was thus on the brink of death when you purchased it). Very strange that you had two die that fast. What conditions were they kept under, where were they purchsed, how much did you pay, what were they fed, did both RT's come from the same place (store dealer ect.), give details maybe someone here can help explain...
