Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about our reptiles and the service we provide.
We ship FedEx Priority Overnight on Monday’s and Wednesday’s. We ship in temps from 25-95 degrees. We do ship a bit cooler than that, but will only ship to a hub for pick up down to about 20 degrees. We ship in the contiguous 48 states for a flat rate of $45 for a small box, which can hold 3 hatchling Ball Pythons.
Since they are all captive-bred, they are more docile than imported wild-caught animals. However, Blood Pythons are generally more aggressive than many pother pythons. If handled properly, they are less prone to biting, and we rarely get bit.
Handle them with slow, diligent movements and support as much of the body weight as possible and they will act calm. They do not like being handled for long periods of time, so short handling sessions are recommended.
Ball Pythons, Corn Snakes or Kenyan Sand Boas are our recommendations. They are all fairly docile and very forgiving of husbandry errors. Each is unique in their handling and activity in their enclosure.
If you are looking for a snake that you can handle often and easily, we recommend a Ball Python.
If you want a snake that is active in its enclosure and can be enjoyed watching it in its enclosure a Corn Snake would be recommended.
Kenyan Sand Boas can be handled, but typically not until they get a little size due to their size as a baby being small.
They don’t make great display animals due to hiding under the substrate, but are unique snakes and make great pets.
We produce 99% of everything we sell. We do occasionally sell animals that were bought for our breeding program, and are no longer needed due to replacing that animal with another or have decided to get out of the project.
So, we will sell something purchased from someone else after we have met our original objective with that animal.
We do not buy snakes from other people for resale, as we prefer to know the full history of the animal, and not wanting to risk the chance of introducing disease or other pathogens into our clean collection.
