Burned to death

At one stage or the other, we all deal with a death. It is never nice losing a pet and thus, you can share your loss with the rest of us and share your memories so that they will be remembered.

Burned to death

The one day I went to school and when I came back from school only to hear my Crossmark whip snake coiled and sqeezed around the lightbulb whitch broke and the snake burned and my father went in the room to see the halfdead snake and a broken light so he had to kill it before it suffers unneccesary . :smt022

Sorry to hear that.

Go to any good pet shop and buy a Repta Round Cage. a Normal house bulb will fit in the CRXS.
I think it stands for: cage round xtra small

Did you have any precautions in place?
If I'm gonna be an old, lonely man, I'm gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I'll be Crazy Man with a Snake, y'know. Crazy Snake Man. And I'll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids won't walk past my place, they will run. "Run away from Crazy Snake Man, " they'll shout!”

Add a pic of your setup so we can give some better advice.

I dont think the bulb would break because the snake coiled around it... I do know however that with cheap bulbs they can sometimes blow and actually pop off the screw or bayonet metal part itself. This then could have killed the snake. With thin snakes like this species i used to use a large glass jar that would screw over the bulb. The snake then cant get to the bulb and also the jar has too big a diameter for the snake to coil around.
