Sylvester is a male albino Burmese Python. He had a really great personality and was one of the favorites whenever we took him out for a 'walk'. He died January 2, 2002 after suffering with a respiratory infection since before Christmas. We had been giving him antibiotics to no avail. It's also possible that the "hot cage" we put him in was too warm for him, and the combination of being sick and being too warm was too much for him. Unfortunately, we'll never know exactly why he died. Mocha was sick also, but he responded to the antibiotics and recovered just fine.
He'll definitely be missed!
