Are We feeding Snakes to Death?

In the world of herpetoculture there are as many opinions on how to properly keep species as there are species themselves. Some of it is backed by science and facts while much of it is baseless and is just done that way because that’s how it always has been. One of the major spheres of influence comes from breeders of reptiles. The goal of reptile breeders is to produce reptiles for sale, which is their job. Therefore many breeders keep lots of animals in rack systems to conserve space and feed their animals frequently to encourage rapid growth and sexual maturation. Whether or not rack systems are wrong is the subject of a different post. What I would like to concentrate on is how we sometimes over feed reptiles, especially snakes, and what the side effects are.

It is well known that after snakes eat their metabolisms are kicked into high gear to help digest the meal. Studies in Burmese pythons show that their hearts actually grow larger in size after a meal to accommodate the increase need for oxygenation of the tissues and to supply more blood to the GI tract. I never really paid much attention to this as a clinician until I had a client who breeds several species of python tell me that his snakes just aren’t living as long as they did when he first got into the business. After spending several days pouring over all of his data (he keeps meticulous records on each snake) and running diagnostics on a few snakes and necropsies on those that had died, I only really found one main issue- he was feeding larger prey items more often starting about a decade ago. I looked into the literature and spoke with some other herp vets and found that animals that are fed more often age faster than those that eat less.

Who cares right? The difference seems only to be a few years in longevity. For breeders whose main goal is producing young to sell, it probably is insignificant. But for people that own snakes just for their own enjoyment or those in zoological institutions those extra years may really matter, especially for endangered species. I see a lot more obesity in reptiles than I used to due to over feeding so not only are we making reptiles fat which causes health problems, we are shortening their lives just be speeding up their metabolisms.

Am cunoscut-o in liceu, o chema Anastasia, pe scurt, Ana. O fata inalta,cam pe la vreo 1, 65, cu ochi albastri si par negru.  Dupa o relatie de 3 ani, o relatie minunata, o relatie care m-a facut sa inteleg ce e iubirea, o relatie care mi-a deschis ochii, o relatie care m-a facut sa ma simt viu, am parasit-o fara sa-i dau vreo explicatie, desi am iubit-o enorm.

Dupa luni bune in care am stat singur, dupa luni bune in care am incercat sa-mi revin si  am avut o relatie, o relatie care a durat opt luni cu o fata foarte desteapta si independenta. Avea toate calitatile pe care un barbat si le-ar putea dori vreodata. Nu am putut sa o iubesc, niciodata nu am putut sa mai iubesc pe cineva in modul in care am iubit-o pe EA. Dupa relatia aceea nu am mai putut sa sarut, sa imbratisez sau sa tin la alta femeie.

Anii au trecut, iar eu am terminat facultatea si mi-am publicat cartea la care ma gandeam inca din liceu. Am avut succes, am devenit cunoscut, aveam bani, dar nu eram fericit, nu eram nici pe aproape.  Intr-o zi, dupa o sesiune de autografe am ajuns acasa si am inceput sa fac curat in biblioteca, iar atunci o hartie a cazut dintr-o carte veche si prafuita, am ridicat-o si am citit numarul de telefon care era scris pe ea. Il stiam pe derost, era numarul ei.  Care era posibilitatea ca dupa 15 ani ea sa aiba acelasi numar de telefon? Am sperat. Imi era teama sa sun. Doua zile am asteptat, m-am gandit, iar intr-un final mi-am facut curaj si am format numarul. Suna. Nu-mi venea sa cred ca suna. O voce firava imi raspunde si spune: „Stiam eu ca ma vei cauta intr-o buna zi”. Nu-mi venea sa cred. Apoi am stat ore in sir si am vorbit, ne-am povestit unul altuia ce am facut dupa liceu, la ce facultati am mers, ce relatii am mai avut si toate cele. Am fost distrus cand am aflat ca are o relatie.

Am continuat sa vorbim zilnic, ma suna dimineata, pe la ora 9, vorbeam in timp ce isi bea cafeaua, mereu i-a placut cafeaua, tare si fara zahar, in schimb eu, eu preferam sa beau ceai, cat de dulce se putea, iar apoi ea pleca la munca si eu ma ocupam cu ale mele urmand sa o sun pe la ora 5 cand se intorcea acasa. Acum locuia in Brasov, se mutase din Bucuresti, zicea ca s-a saturat de aglomeratie, de zgomote si de oamenii rai.  Am continuat asa luni, luni intregi, luni in care vorbeam la telefon de doua ori pe zi , asta pana cand s-a hotarat sa-mi faca o surpriza intr-o o zi super faina, prin iulie, ziua in care mi-a spus ca vrea sa ma vada si ca se indreapta spre Bucuresti. Am ramas blocat, nu am stiut ce sa spun sau ce sa fac. Imediat cum i-am inchis telefonul mi-am luat un tricou negru pe mine, m-am indreptat spre cea mai apropiata cofetarie si i-am cumparat prajitura ei preferata, era genul de persoana careia nu ii placeau florile si dulcegariile, dar care adora dulciurile.

Am asteptat-o in locul in care ne intalneam mereu in liceu, in locul in care ne-am sarutat prima oara, locul in care i-am dat sa asculte The doors prima oara, locul in care am scris de sute de ori numele noastre si locul in care ne-am jurat de mii de ori iubire eterna. Am asteptat-o 15 minute, parca trecuse o vesnicie. Dupa cele 15 minute de asteptare o vad indreptandu-se spre mine, am impietrit. Era asa frumoasa. La fel de frumoasa ca atunci cand am cunoscut-o . Inima imi batea din ce in ce mai tare. S-a oprit in fata mea, nu a scos niciun cuvant. Ma privea in ochi. S-a uitat la mine asa si eu la ea cam vreo 5 minute, apoi i-am spus „Buna, mi-ai lipsit!”. Lacrimile au inceput sa ne curga siroaie, am strans-o tare in brate si am sarutat-o pe frunte. Dupa ceva timp, i-am dat drumul,i-am atins fata  si am continuat sa ma uit la ea, i-am spus cat e de frumoasa, i-am spus cat de mult mi-a lipsit si ca nu am putut sa iubesc pe nimeni asa cum am iubit-o pe ea. Tot ce a putut sa-mi spun a fost „Atunci de ce dracu m-ai parasit asa?”. Nu am avut puterea sa-i raspund pe moment, dar m-am adunat si i-am explicat ca pe vremea aia nu eram destul de matur pentru ea, i-am explicat ca nu am vrut sa-si piarda vremea cu un pusti imatur care o putea rani enorm, asa ca am preferat, pur si simplu, sa plec si sa o las sa creasca, am sperat ca voi putea sa-mi gasesc fericirea in bratele altei persoane, dar nu a fost asa. I-am spus ca inca o iubesc si ca eu cred ca intr-o zi vom fi din nou ca inainte.

-Vreau sa te sarut, mi-a spus ea cu o voce tremuranda.

-Dar scumpo, nu ar fi moral, tu esti intr-o relatie, iar eu nu pot sa distrug ceea ce ai cladit alaturi de el..

-Dar ce e moral in ziua de azi? Noi doi nu suntem oameni, noi suntem sentimente si trebuie sa ne dam frau sentimentelor, nu?

In momentul acela am sarutat-o, ah, cat de mult mi-au lipsit sarutarile ei, erau diferite, erau calde, erau pline de iubire.

Dupa acea intalnire ea s-a desparit de acel barbat, s-a mutat la mine,iar dupa un an ne-am casatorit,am calatorit, eu am mai publicat o carte, cartea noastra, cu si despre povestea noastra de iubire, care a durat mult, foarte mult, ar fi durat si astazi daca nu ar fi fost nenorocitul ala cancer, cel care a luat-o de langa mine cand aveam cea mai mare nevoie de ea. Sunt sigur ca de atunci e zilnic cu mine, chiar daca nu mai e aici fizic, ii simt caldura, o simt in spatele meu cand ii duc pe nepoti in parc, inca o aud spunandu-mi „te iubesc” inainte sa adorm, o simt oriunde ma duc si continui sa le spun tuturor despre povestea noastra de dragoste.  Uneori o visez asa cum era ea, tanara, frumoasa, puternica, asa cum i-ar fi placut ei sa si-o aminteasca toti. Ea a fost o luptatoare, a fost o femeie buna, curajoasa si iubitoare, femeia care m-a facut sa fiu cine sunt azi, femeia care m-a invatat sa fac diferenta dintre bine si rau, femeia care mi-a schimbat viata, marea me iubire.

           Sunt sigur ca intr-o buna zi ne vom revedea, cat de curand, iubito, cat de curand…

A New Creation

Text: Isaiah 63:15-19, Isaiah 64:1-12, Isaiah 65:1-25, Matthew 26:20-50

A few nights ago, I threw myself down in my big fluffy chair to read Isaiah 65. It had been a long week with things going “differently” than I’d expected—meaning, EVERYTHING FELL APART. When days like these come to an end, all I know to do is make myself a cup of chai tea with almond milk, diffuse some essential oil that promises to ease all my stress, and sit down, Bible open, to whatever passage someone has encouraged me to read, just hoping it might make a difference in my attitude.

Those nights. You know the ones I’m talking about? The nights when you start spinning, thinking about how things could be going better, how life seems harder than it should be and isn’t exactly what you thought you were signing up for. As I read from Isaiah that night, I talked to God about what I was seeing on the page and how I longed for Him to show up.

Honestly, it’s not that I need Him to fix everything that feels broken in my life. Sure, sometimes I want a quick, easy fix to my problems, but I know what planet I’m living on. I know things here are hardly ever easy and never ever perfect. Jesus said it would be hard, but that He had overcome (John 16:33). Why don’t I remember that verse more often?

Trust me: there are plenty of nights when I just want to turn on Netflix and let episodes of Friends run back-to-back until even the screen seems to ask, “Are you still watching?” But this night was different. I knew I needed the quiet, not the noise or some other distraction. I knew I needed to connect with God, not pull away from Him.

It was a forced behavior, to be sure, but that happens in all relationships, doesn’t it? Moments when you want to isolate, but then you remember the commitment you’ve made, and somehow love leads you back toward relationship instead of running away from it.

So I drank my tea and I read. And there it was: New heaven. New earth. New.

Yes, I thought, I want NEW. I want a world where destruction—of places, of culture, of dreams and hearts and hopes—is barely a distant memory. I don’t know if it was God’s Word, the diffusing oils, or a combination of the two, but my heart started to calm down.

I think that’s what these pages and stories from Scripture are meant to do for the people of God—to remind us of what God is actively doing today and what He’s promised to do when He makes all things new (Isaiah 65:17). He is the One who answers even before we call. He is the One who acts while I’m still asking. He is the One who promises He’s present in any and all circumstances.

On that Tuesday night, before I’d even finished calling on Him, God answered me with peace and connection—with His very presence.

I think that will be the best part of the “new” that’s to come: God’s palpable and pervasive presence, uninterrupted by my sin or attitude or even Netflix. There’s so much about our eternity that is going to be beyond good, but being face to face with the God who hears and sees and answers and loves me completely? That’s the part I look forward to the most.
