housing snakes at a weekend expo.....

I'm curious to hear what measures people take when taking reptiles to an expo. where they will be away from home for a few days?....It would not seem realistic to take a large enclosure for a large snake along for the ride....what would suffice in such a situation?

Hello Yvonne. I'm not sure if you're a vendor or not, but obviously you need appropriate "display" housing if this is the case, but that goes without saying.
But for snakes, they are easy to deal with for a couple days... I used to take 50 or so to schools for shows... I just bagged them all individually in pillow cases and stuffed them in a big suit case. It just looked like I was on a business trip! LOL
Suitcases have locks and good zippers too, so this ads to security, and being escape proof which is essential.

We bag them and put them in coolers. when ever we get to the destanation we leave the lids undone. Looks like we're going to a picnic.

thanks for the replies. Roy-I am not a vendor that uses snakes but I was going to use a snake in an artisitic photo shoot away from home. After thinking about it, I decided against the idea...it would just cause unnecessary stress for the animal and stress for me too. I'd be staying in a hotel and worrying about the snake the whole weekend for a 4 hour shoot. Its not worth it.
I don't think the snake will be very dissappointed about not having her picture taken!lol

I'm not sure who it's more stressful for, us or the animal, I think the animal is fine, as long as temps are good, it's just like being in a hide box for an extended period of time. Of course the standard rules for shipping apply, do not feed for a week.
