She was almost 12 years old, and passed on a few years ago. I got her as a rescue when she was 9 (and about 10 foot), lived her entire life before that in a crappy 2'x3' wood frame cage with chicken wire - it was pretty sad. I still have the cage, but I fixed it up with better mesh and its now a rat gymnasium. I donated her body to be taxidermied for an educational display, its hours away so I haven't had the time to be able to go see it for myself, but others have told me that whoever worked on her did a very good job.
Currently, I have a normal colored one and an albino, just to show the differences. They're both about the same size, and just under four years old. I take them to schools and church programs, along with a dozen or so other snakes, lizards, turtles and so forth to teach people about reptiles.
She sits in her corner, singing herself to sleep.
Wrapped in all of the promises, that no one seems to keep.
