I'm also sorry for your loss and agree with hotrod guy. Don't let it get you down, but I would suggest taking an honest and very critical look at your setup. I'm not saying your husbandry is wrong because I have no idea what your setup consists of or looks like, but there could be something very minor or easily overlooked, that caused his death. At that age they are very susceptible to many things. Possibly heat strees, to large a piece of prey, if it happened overnight, it's hard to say. I always have a necropsy done to try and figure out what went wrong and to make my husbandry better. Good luck.
:As someone mentioned before, sometimes things happen. Sorry about your loss, don't let it prevent you from getting another cham. These animals are very delicate and fragile. He may of been doomed from the start. This is a hobby that has alot of loss that can't be prevented. All I can say is, go get yourself another companion and do things the way you did them before. Don't let it get you down!
