Okay. It has had mites for about a week. I fed it since it had not eaten for a looong time, and that was my first priority. So today... just a while ago, I took it out to spray it with that reptile mite killer from most petstores. I saw that it was in blue... I took it out sprayed it, sprayed the enclosure, it was active. I put it in a delicup with the mite stuff for a minute or less while I sprayed the enclosure. It shot right out when I took the lid of, I grabbed it to rub him so mights could dissingegrate. Well... It pooped/musked on me and exhaled really loudly and just wen absolutely limp. I was like W.T.F. It was very active moments earlier and suddelny it just went limp. I thought it was playindead, but I couldn't see it breathing. Sad! I flipped it to see if it righted tiself and it did barely. I picked it up but it was limp still. So I put it back in its enclosure and it didnt move. I opened its mouth and it didn't even bother to move away, it just let itself. It was still twitching for a while... rather reacting to touches by me, but now it seems to have died.

So um, do burms play dead this good? Or is it really gone?

I am verry verry mad/sad right now....

When you grabbed him . . . could you have punctured a lung?

This whole situation really sucks. RIP
