I have always had dreams that have come to pass, but I have never dreamed of snakes. We were at a friend's house and she had a baby boa named Sporty. She was going to be moving and she was unable to take Sporty with her so we agreed to take her. I never handle or took care of any reptiles so was little worried about her care. I was never afraid of her though. We brought her home and put her in her aquarium he went outside and I went to take a nap. I have never dreamed of any snakes before in my life, but I dreamt she crawled out the aquarium. I jumped up and he just came in the house and I was saying hurry she is out she is out don't let the dog get her. Sure enough when we got in there she was not in her cage but was in the planter below it. She was safe and sound and we put her back in her cage, this time with a lid on it.
From the time she came home to us I began having dreams of her. Whenever I would lay down most of the time I would dream of her.
I have always loved animals and was fond of her. She grew very very quick. When we got her she was no more than 12 inches long and we had her a couple months or so she was almost 3ft long. There is one thing I have failed to mention during these dreams she would talk to me in my dreams. And this one night I dreamed we talked as usual except she told me she was going to leave me. She said she was going to die. I kept telling her no no no she couldn't do that. She said she was sorry but couldn't change that. I began crying telling please don't leave me. I didn't want her to die I didn't want her to leave me. Then she still looked like a snake but she was lit up like a white light and slithered away.
Next day soon as I woke I checked on her and she was fine. I was almost afraid to look. I didn't say anything to anyone about the dreams I had or had been having. It was a busy day we were gone most of the day. When we got home it was night. Soon as we got in the door I did as I usually did check on our dog and check on Sporty. Soon as I got near her cage and looked in the aquarium my heart sank. I began crying saying "No no no why. She told me she was going to die, but why? She said she was going to die, I told her I didn't want her to." He told me no no she is ok look. He had picked her up and was showing me she was moving and ok. I stopped crying, I was down to sniffling and I sat at her cage watching her every move. It was time for dinner so washed up and we ate. We went outside for about an hour and when we came in she had passed. I started crying all over again repeating that she had told me she was going to die.
The weird and odd thing about this is after she died dreaming of snakes and her stopped completely. I guess I am trying to understand what happened and has anyone else ever experienced such dreams. If you're wondering why she passed we believe when she shed her skin it got caught over her nose and she smothered. The vet said that can happen in small snakes. It is so odd I have never ever dreamed of snakes until then. And for the dreams to stop and never happen again is quite strange. I would love to have another snake but not so sure I want to dream of snakes like that again.
