Wow, sorry to hear it. I had something similar happen to me ealier this winter and I lost quite a few snakes ranging from corns, cb silver phase G. oxcephala, to my Canebrake and copperheads. I've changed my entire system now and haven't had any problems. In instances like this, a snakes own biology is it's unduing, allowing them to heat up faster than they cool down. Mine wasn't a total loss, as certain areas in the shed I've built are more prone to higher temps then other areas. It's definately a shame in your case, especially when you are talking about the moellendorffi which I know you had to put some work into to get acclimated, and the albino, which is a very rare find indeed. Unfortunatley, learning sometimes happens the hardest of ways.
