RIP Reptar, Welcome Squeezie

So our terrestrial salamander, Reptar, passed away last week. We have had him for several years, and he was full grown when we got him, so we think he may have just died of old age. He was a really cool animal, and we will miss him dearly.

RIP my dear pet

The day after Reptar passed, we went to the pet store to buy some crickets. Well, they had a ball python up for adoption. Her owner was moving and could no longer keep her. Long story short, we took the 7-year-old python home. Her name is Squeezie (named by her old owner). She is as sweet as a snake can be :) The picture below shows her in her old cage. We switched her cage with our corn snake's after cleaning them both out and adding carefresh.
