A couple days ago, my corn snake passed away. I had her for about 10 years, and raised her since she was about the size of a worm.
About two years ago she escaped. All the neighborhood kids were looking for her, and I gave out flyers to all the nearby neighbors. The snake was found in one of their yards, kind of beat up and dehydrated but quite alive. She came around to appearing very healthy after that. We had an ice cream party to celebrate her return. The ice cream was for us, the snake had a mouse.
I haven't told those kids yet.
Gross maybe, but the snake is in my freezer until I decide on either burial or taxidermy. I'd like to keep her skin, it's beautiful! But that might be creepy.
