    yeah mate, when its sudden, you just feel cheated as in if it happened slower maybe there was something you could of done. Although mate dont beat yourself
    up as by the sounds of it you did all of the right things. Let me know what the vet said and share exactly what happened so myself and others can hopefully learn from this grim
    situation :(

    If it was RI then you need to address your husbandry...

    When it comes to reptiles, a virus is one of the worst things that can come into your collection.

    Definitely does not sound like Respiratory Infection
    You would have noticed the symptoms long ago
    RI is a long slow process before it becomes fatal
