Id go with what Rachel said as a last resort. Check out the laws to make sure the guy was right and go from there. If all else fails and they come back to see if you got rid of them hide them. I dont know about Canada or where ever youre at but here in the states they need a warrant to come into the house. That law just doesnt sound right to me and Id be completely ticked if some stranger came into my house and told me what I could and couldnt have as a pet.
How in the heck did they find out about the snakes anyway?
If youre happy and ya know it slap your face!
