– 1 Pewter Ball Python

– 3 Carpet Pythons(6+ft long)

– 2 Red Tail Boas (7+ ft)

– 1 Savannah Monitor Lizard (see picture)

The Savannah Monitor Lizard has burns and sores on her body. KC Pet Project says the shells on the tortoises are starting to collapse due to malnutrition.

The snakes have upper respiratory illness. As with all of these situations, KC Pet Project relies on donations to help pay for the care of these animals. If you want to contribute, click here for the donation link.
