Midnight II died this morning. He was looking rough for the last week and I had started bringing the water bottle to him to make sure he was drinking. Yesterday he let a few drops run down his muzzle but didn’t seem thirsty. When I checked him today, he was gone. We’d only had him for eight months but I have no idea how old he was when we got him.
The new day also brought two more baby gerbils. We’ve far exceeded the maximum number of gerbils I’d like to have but until I buy a python, there’s not much to do.
