Brenna took Hephaestus back to Radford with her. Hes found a nice home with one of Brenna's friends who already has a boa. I felt pretty good about that, she's a snake owner and knows what she's getting into. He'll be much happier there. We put Baby Snake (who's no longer the baby) up on Craigs List and she was snapped up in no time. She's going to be a Christmas present for a girl who's wanted a snake for a long time. The dad came by today and seemed very nice and very excited about Baby Snake.
Now it's very weird. The cages are gone, we've moved one of the bookcases, it's just weird and sad. I didn't realize how often I reflexively check on the cages to see what the snakes are doing and every time I look in the room and they aren't there it's startling. It was a good run and maybe some day we'll have snakes again, but for now I guess I'll just get use to this new norm.
