This is Luna, our beautiful Boa. She has been so poorly we were going to have her put to sleep. The snake version of a cold led to the nasty condition known as Mouth Rot. She has been ill for weeks and we thought she had lost her tongue, but antibiotics directly in her mouth plus good old Vaporub in hot water is working well. Yesterday she started flicking her tongue out again and is very alert. We are a bit concerned about her weight loss as she has not eaten for quite a while but will try her on very small food in the next day or two. She is a big girl and has been quite bad tempered during all this but now she is on the mend and is returning to her usual placid temperament.

I'm afraid snakes are not one of my favourite animals but I am glad she is on the mend.

a very good boa portrait. you must be a wonderful person to care so much about reptiles that scare most people.
