Inland Taipans are not only the most venomous snake in the world but they are also one of the most relaxed and best to work with. In this video however, my favourite inland taipan, Steve is not doing well and the chances of him surviving isn't looking good.

  • My favorite ball Python Urbilina died after the same type of ordeal she slowly lost strength and there was nothing I could do because it happened so fast and it was devistating she had such a good personality and beautiful cinnamon morph her scales were almost pearlescent rainbow like and it's always sad losing your favorite in your collection it leaves a mark on your brain and heart that you look for in every other other snake but there's so much bonding when you are the one they rely on for everything and have a mutual understanding that you aren't going to hurt eachother although each of you has the ability to break that trust but snakes aren't always bonded to humans but sometimes there's one that you know by their eyes and demeanor they literally love you and to see you . And then you always have the asshole snakes that don't even need provoking to strike it makes the ones that love so much more enjoyable to connect with

  • As I'm writing this comment I'm aware that Steve has since died. I'm sorry for the loss. For what it's worth, I had a very similar issue with a Pine Snake. The issue started after my snake regurgitated a rat in 2019. The body spasms came about a few days later and he became very lethargic. I waited 2 weeks before I offered food again which he refused. I watched my snake waste away as he refused food for the next 2 months and the spasms persisted. I couldn't stand to see him suffer and was ready to put him out of his misery but a friend convinced me to give him more time. Finally after another month without food this 5 1/2 foot snake ate a hopper and it would be another 3 weeks before he would eat again. I was eventually able to get him back to small rats again and build back his body mass before brumation. Today he is well over 6 feet long and is as healthy as he can be. I would love to know what happened to cause this with Steve and my Pine.

  • I do not like snakes, they are too scary. I just looked at this snake and it made me feel bad, the animal has lost its instincts, kind of a identity crisis. He must be in pain and he can't even convey his pain. Unfortunately I saw another video today where Dingo confirmed Steve's demise. Rest in peace fellow animal. Strength to Dingo. We need more people like you Dingo. Animals can transform anyone's heart. Keep up the lovely work.

  • I'm so sorry, mate. I love Steve - such a beautiful snake with a lovely personality. Heartbreaking! I'm a doctor not a vet but it looks like he has increased muscle tone in places from the neck down. If he was a person I'd be worried about injury to the central nervous system such as a stroke - especially given the speed of onset. I really hope it's something reversible instead. At least we know he's in the best possible hands. I can't think of a better place to be if I were a snake.

His spine looks as bad as my spine gets when it’s in full spasm mode n that’s the worst pain ever (it’s worse than dislocating (I have Elders Danlos Syndrome so have a lot of dislocations each day) several joints all at the same time).... It cripples u... I have everything crossed for him.. Sending much love n huge hugs to u n the family xxx

  • I feel for u man! I cried twice over my pet Tarauntula. We were close, she even came to me, or near me when she was free roaming, always. Sometimes she just rested on my lap and I pet her, often, for like, what seemed hours!^^ Sadly, one day she figured out how to climb what seemd to be an "un climable" wall and made it out a cracked window, couple stories up. She got her humpty dumpty on and yeah, kings horses, men, had same results for her as with Humpty.^^ There was some other things that happened that just, put her through trauma after the fall, and to be honest, I'm not sure if it was the fall that exploded her abdomen, or the idiot people (possibly kids too) grouped around her, probably throwing rocks at her. When I arrived, a guy had her in a bucket (was trying to get her in) with a shovel and she just looked, horrible. I got her, almost killed everybody, and took her in, cleaned her up and made an icu for her. Prayers and hope, but 3 days later, she succumbed to her wounds. That was hard for me. Similar scenerio with a Rabbit years back as well (that's a whole nother story but...^^). Stay strong pimpn, do what chu can, I know u will.
