So I have some things to update on, since I have a habit of forgetting to talk about things. Today it's been 10 days since I lost blueberry. There's been absolutely no sign of her. It got extremely cold over this past week. Down in the single digits and even below zero at some points and we go a bunch I snow. It's gotten unusually cold in the house as well. I don't even know if she's still alive at this point. I also don't have my rats anymore. They had to be re-homed. I'm not going into reasons why, it's nothing bad, I just don't feel it's necessary to explain. There were a few reasons I finally made that decision. I've been having a really hard time lately. Way too much stress, just feeling like crap. Honestly it's been extremely hard to find motivation to do anything anymore after losing blueberry. I had no idea how much this would fuck me up. I've been trying to get things back order and get back to at least some sort of routine. I have a lot of things I need to get done that I just haven't had the energy for. #cornsnake#anerycornsnake#petsnake#snakes#snakeofig#snakesofinstagram#reptilesofinstagram#cornsnakesofinstagram#herpsofinstagram#herps

When compared to human skin, the skin of a reptile is thin and fragile, unlike the skin of mammals which is a thick, leathery dermal layer that offers protection. Because of this, snakes rely on their scales for protection for more than just exposure to UV rays from the sun. A reptile’s scales also protect the animal from abrasions as they scurry across the ground or briefly dive beneath the surface of the water. Scales also help protect reptiles from the loss of body moisture which helps them stay healthy.
