I agree. In the wild yes it probably would not have survived but this is not the wild - and by helping it, it is now alive any extremely healthy.
i personally have helped a number of snakes that should have 'not survived' and they are doing just fine - and just like BB Gabonica's uro - better than the healthy born ones.

Thought I would just add onto this thread. My female dropped this little chap over the weekend. Unfortunately she only had this single live baby. However, since this is her first breeding and she is only two years old, I'm not too disappointed. He/she is doing well and has already had his/her first meal.

He has lots of brown in him. Very pretty. Congratulations!

All crotalus are really cool imo. Congrats with your baby! Urocoans are on my list too. I wish my cascabels would have babies! I much prefer live birth to the whole egg saga and I am glad you saved that little chap. Nature can be a mother ( in the other sense of the word) and I don't see why we should adopt her attitude in all instances :D

Just an update.
The little chap is doing really well and eating large pinkies without fuss. He is roughly 20cm long now.
