Are you going to see if it survives?

I want to euthanaze it but have family resistanse over that idea at the moment. Although it seems otherwise heathly I only see value in seeing how important eye sight is or isn't in regards to feeding. If anybody is curious, they are more welcome to it.

No charge but there is a 12 week holding period which is just a standard license condition.

I'd take it, interesting addition to the collection, long as it can still eat.

Wow! Im keen to hear how it survives and how lack of sight effects is balance eating sheding ect...
The awkward look you get when u ask a girl if she'd like to come back to your place and check out your snake :/

Dave, I bred one three years the same, blind with no eyes at all.  It did pretty well although had to force feed it for four months but it eventually started eating by itself.  My old man had it but eventually died after 7 months.  Link to pics posted in 2010:
