This is the saddest post yet.

I agree. I wrote about Thomas's sad end because I wanted to write about his long clever life and his happy tubifex dance. After that, it seemed correct to tell the whole story.


Poor Thomas. My son had a snake who seemed to know when it was feeding time (thrashing wildly about in his terrarium), but we can't determine what if any cues he was picking up for the same reason you can't experiment on Thomas. Except that the snake wasn't found for many months, and then at the bottom of a storage box in a distinctly dessicated situation.

Huh. Perhaps this is the secret of the Egyptian mummies? They went exploring, got wedged in a sarcophagus that happened to be lying around -- no, probably not.
