Luke’s cornsnake died today and he’s devastated about it.
We don’t know how it happened as he was being set aside until he ate. His cage was bolted and everything and his room mate found him on the carpet today dead.
I’m so sad. This is all my fault I talked him in to buying a snake.
That’s a real shame, but it’s not your fault the poor thing died.
There must have been an underlying issue, though strange that it got out of its tank.
Either way, many sympathies for you both :(

Followed from my main. Welcome to the fold
Niggas be like ”He don’t bite”
"He still a baby"
"he won’t hurt you, just pet him"
That’s not a dog it’s a lion o_o
I’ve had dogs bound up to me like that and all they did was give me a hug and lick my face.
Hell I had a wolf (genuinely, it was at a wolf sanctuary) do this to me one time.
Plus, look at how sturdy that leash is, and the grip he has on it. He’s making sure the dog doesn’t jump on anyone. Dude’s just got a big dog.
That dog’s tail is wagging a mile a minute. It’s not being aggressive, it’s just getting a little over excited.
That being said, it can be extremely intimidating to have such a large animal jump at you like that even if it is just trying to say hello.
This kid understands that and has a very good hold on his dog. He isn’t alarmed or surprised by the dog’s actions. The dog isn’t acting out of the ordinary. It’s just excited.
Here’s the video, if anyone speaks French that’d be awesome because it can give us some context. I can’t tell if that sound is growling, trouble breathing, or something else entirely?
(@feelingstreamtotem translation maybe?)
I think it’s growling, but it could be laboured breathing. I don’t think that collar is the best for a dog of that size, it could restrict his airways somewhat, a thicker collar or even better, a harness would be my advice. It’s not a cruel collar by any stretch of the imagination but if he’s prone to pulling I would change the collar to compensate.
As for the dog, he’s definitely trying to get at those guys, whether it’s excitement or aggression I’m not entirely sure. But his tail is up and rigid, not wagging leisurely, and his ears are up and pointed forward which are both typical signs of aggression in dogs.
EDIT: On watching it again, he is wagging his tail as well. Rapid wagging can indicate aggression which was my first instinct, but it makes me not so certain. He could just be excitable.
!!! I am not an expert in dogs by any means. So this is just observations by someone who watches and reads a lot about dogs in their spare time. I’ll gladly be corrected by someone who knows more regarding dogs !!!
