And there’s more to it than just a thermostat but those detail are for another day.This poor kiddo has actively healing 3rd degree burns, as well as old scars from past burns. That means he has suffered severe burns in his past more than once. The person who rescued him has done an excellent job with his care and he is healing well, again. They asked for our help however so we agreed to take over. What you see in these pictures is the scarring left behind after losing over half the width of his belly scales. He will be ok but isn’t it amazing how much they can heal from? Welcome to Snake Haus Marble. I’m sorry we didn’t find you sooner in your painful life but you are safe now.
