He Needed to Be Rescued...

If you went to some trailer trash place and had a lady sell you a young snake would you? sorry let me explain.

4-bleeding bite marks

sagging skin from when he was the right size but clearly hadn't been fed in over a month

skittish because no one handled him and constantly in a tight ball.

and only a yearling.

Luckily he didn't have a respiratory infection and as soon as we got him home we put him under a heat lamp and afterwards we took him out and he curled up around my neck and fell asleep with his head under my ear.

i paid $40 for him, would have paid even more just to take him home and give him the love he desperatly needed, his name is Shyboy.

Aw poor little baby. I couldn't have left him there either. If anyone treated my Satan like that, there would be a deep hole in the back yard

thank you

yes i could have taken him just like that, but it was a friend of a friend, the truck wasnt started up, and by the look of their living conditions they could use $40 and i felt like i would be helping both toward a better future. shyboy got a new caring home and they got money and less expenses toward another mouth to feed : )

You did the right thing. But as a guy, I wouldn't have paid for him. I'd have just took him.<br />

I have no patience or love for those that abuse, or don't take care of animals. Much like my friends at Rescue Ink in New York.

thank you so much. best wishes to you and your new scaley friend!

Oh thats wonderful. I would do the same thing. I just got my first snake this month and I love him! It sucks when people dont take care of their animals. You did a wonderful thing.
