    Man that sucks Joel. As others have said it was no fault of your own so keep your head up and best of luck on the rest of your season!

    So sorry for your loss......

    Put your whip away this wasn't your fault.........

    I am not convinced they are slugs at all. That looks like a big abscess to me Joel... If it was malodorous It very well could be............

    I am very sorry for your loss .. I can understand how you feel .. I lost 3 years ago from one day to another my wc surinam female during the mating period, We simply can not see into the animals to know what happens

    Agreed, I admit so many animals are posted on here at times its hard to keep up. From reading the thread it seems a few members had intimate knowledge of Hammerhead but some of us don't.

    Thanks so much for sharing your experiences and the autopsy , it is something I have never seen and was quite amazed to see the yellow masses.

    Hope you never have to experience something like that again
    Thanks Mitch, I had to know what was going on....I am not medically trained in the least but it was pretty obvious that things were not right and were the problem was.

    I know how it can break your heart.
    I've lost a few beautiful fems in the ovulation process over the years
    Not in the actuall birth process yet though
    Sorry for the loss Joel
    We as keepers will all face things like this, yes it made for a bummer of a day but I am right back at it today and feeding the collection of boas that bring me such pleasure....thanks Larry.

    Best wishes.
    Thank you for your kind words....the other boas are keeping me busy today

    Thanks Leigh, I felt much better after the autopsy and seeing the septic masses and that there were no viable babies....glad I did that.

    Yeah certainly made for a bummer of a day....I think the only lesson would be one of a humbling and gracious nature as I keep these boas and "ask" them to breed for my pleasure....putting there health at risk....bitter sweet.

    You are probably correct, The mass nearest her vent was a very different consistency and appeared to be a puss filled lump, the second mass was a large lump of slugs that were all stuck together. No way was she ever going to deliver that stuff

    I'm truly sorry about your loss.

    We all know it is one of possible risks that we take when breeding
    =================================
    Lord, if you can't make me a better man, that's ok.
    I'm having a real good time, as is.
