This evening my partner and I came home and found our 3 month old Ball Python dead, We are devastated and a little bemused.
The arsehole at the shop gave us a wood based substrate to house her on and reading some of the facts online has led me to believe she died of impaction. If this is the case, my fist will be striking the store owner a lot harder than ruby could have struck him. We have a berded bragon from a hatchling and I have worked with snakes but never kept one.
We followed all the rules and advise from the many unknown friends online and now we are looking at each other wondering why? The thought of this baby dying in pain while we were not here to help pisses me off and I need answers before I act irrationaly.
Please help

The only person that can give you concrete answers is a vet after a necropsy is performed. There's really no way for me to know what truly caused the demise of your ball python. I'm sorry for your loss. :-(

I have a spider male, and an adult normal, they are totally different sizes, and i would never keep two in the same cage with different genders, but if i had two females in the same 40-50 gallon enclosure is that ok? (p.s. otherwise is it ok to house a 500-600 gram female in a 20 long (29 gallon) thanks -Hunter
