    Hey guys I have a lovely 18 month Royal Python and he's a beauty. I have had him since a hatchling and know him very well. In November he got a horrible belly burn due to thermal blocking on a heat mat. The burn was quite bad, he needed daily antibiotic and painkiller injections for 3 weeks...

    So, I am not trying to open a can of worms on this one. I am genuinely interested.

    I've had my female Sonoran dwarf boa out and she has a mark running down part of her spine which looks like a healed over burn, or a scar from an injury. I can't work out what has caused it. :sad: Other than myself she is never handled by anyone else. I've had her since she was 4 months old...
