McALESTER — David Menges, of McAlester, brings his snake, Sunni, to visit his veterinarian Friday morning at Renegar Animal Hospital. Menges said Sunni, an albino Burmese python, had developed a respiratory infection after it got too cold and began drooling and “making funning noises.” Menges said larger snakes are more susceptible to cold weather than smaller snakes.
