Remembering Arya

Well, four years ago tomorrow, I got Arya, my snake (Columbian Red-Tailed Boa) for Christmas. Today, on Christmas Eve of all days, I had to put her down. The short version, is that she’s been going downhill for a few months, and the vet said he thought she had a tumor on her brain, but this post isn’t about today. I just wanted to post a couple milestone photos to remember her by.

She (along with special grandson-super-powers) was the first and only snake mom ever held!

She had a pretty sweet custom built cage (Thanks Doug)

And she hung out with me while I worked, all the time!
