Need advice on shipping

I have never had snakes shipped to me before, and I was wondering what I need to watch out for. Is it safe to ship in current weather conditions?


Thanks in advance!

I think the only way it woud be safe is if it is the same day and the snakes are sent with heat packs.

Thanks nuno, that's what I thought. It is being shipped via Air Canada Cargo from London (Ontario) to Toronto. Would I need to be prepared for any hassle or to pay any additional fees when picking it up? Its a ratsnake.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Edwin,
I thought that you pay the airport when you pick it up. But I could be wrong. Its usually about 60 bucks i think too. But have fun with your new snake when you get him.

I checked their website, and they have a new policy regarding live animal shipments. All fees must be paid up front.

We just had 2 snakes shipped to us from halifax. they arrived alive because they were packed well. they were in their own little containers (plastic sandwich containers with holes), placed in a styrofoam box (like a disposable cooler) with newspaper to keep them from bouncing around too much and a bottle of hot water to keep them from getting chilled. the styrofoam box was in a tight fitting cardboard box that was well taped.

also they were shipped same day, as live animals (which means they get the heated cargo hold and waiting area on arrival). You will pay extra, but so what?

If you have your own vehical i'd suggest going to london and picking them up, the time ends up being the same, what with loading, unloading, etc. and you don't have the flight (air pressure changes, noise, vibration) to stress them.

it's what a 2 hour drive each way?
