I couldn't stand Dexter's look anymore so I soaked last night. Something just seemed off to me on this one. I needed to see the body condition on Dexter. Boy was I shocked.
This is Dexter in a 6 qurt tub after soaking. I was told by the owner this snake was fed a rat. Where is the belly bump? Not only where is the bump but why can I see Dexter's spine? I can feel ribs and bones of the skull. I am not going to lie I cried for Dexter. I quickly thawed a mouse for Dexter and it was eaten very quickly. Quicker then my personal Balls do. I hope I can save Dexter and I wish I had started this rescue earlier. The reason for surrender was the didn't want to feed Dexter anymore.
Dexter still is in need of supplies. Pease if you could help I would really appreciate it. If any one is interested, I have set up a wishlist for Dexter's needs. The wishlist can be found on Amazon.
Edit: Dexter's weight - 490 grams
Thanks for stopping by!
