Yes!! Totally different...like sick-to-my-stomach different. It's like finding out your sentimental diamond is really a CZ. Even though it's just as precious for sentimental reasons, you still fell jipt.

It's a good thing I had only thrown 3 rabbits Rumple's way in efforts to fatten the snake up for breeding...I could have wasted a lot of cash. Still, at $6-6.50 a rabbit, I wasted nearly $20. I gave Rumple 3 in two weeks and really, one a month would have been sufficient to keep *him* healthy. In addition to what was fed away already, I bought two adult pregnant females and a male rabbit to keep babies coming...Now, I don't need so many rabbits.

I've been so mad for hours...and it's no one's fault but my own for trusting that guy to be accurated when he did a visual on him. I'm so glad my own probe set will come shortly and I just got lessons on it...I do not want this to happen again, ever!! LOL!

. :Man,. that sucks. And I know that the worst thing of all is probably finding out that what you had always thought of as a girl, is actually a boy,. and it just somehow feels differently, doesn't it? It took me a couple months to get accustomed to my large green patternless african rock python being a male instead of the beautiful big girl I thought she was. It's just really different for some reason even though it's the same snake.

:
::You know that 14 foot retic I've had for 19 years that I've talked about?? I just got probing lessons, we probed her and it turns out she is actually a he. (I bought her/he unsexed and the guy who sex the snake for me about 5 years ago just did a visual to declare it a she based on little tail spurs.) So, all this time I've been looking for a male and I don't need one. I've wasted a huge amount of time looking for a snake I didn't need...I'm so glad I hadn't bought anything yet.
