Snakes on a plane, Part 1: The arrival inspection

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Last week I recieved a late xmas pressie.

Some snakes decided to fly from Calgrary, AB to London, ON for me to pick up. I was impatiently waiting for this guys...the weather would not agree, the airline would not agree...then finally we got some good weather and it was all a go. They left on Tues. and arrived on Wed.

The box of snakies:



Kizzy investigating



All out of the box, I recieved 8 snakes



Kizzy going WTH...that bag just moved OMG.



OMG, it's moving some more



Eh? Wut iz dis?



Interesting.... very interesting



EEEKKKK. I think something touched my butt



I better keep a good eye on this one, it's making funny noises....

Watching Kizzy was sooooooo funny.

(that is as close as he will get to my snakes btw).

I was not thinking, and set the bags out on the floor while unpacking... of course, Kizzy right there and seeing the bag move.... what do cats normally do to something moving under a blanket?

I caught him in time tho, then promptly moved the bags.

He'd circle the containers, watching the snakes move.... peer in as close as he could get. One of them didn't like him and striked the container while Kizzy's nose was pressed against it.

I did not know Kizzy could jump that high LMAO

That it too cool! Were the snakes at all grumpy about their trip? I love the look on Kizzy's face watching the bags move.

I'll bet he jumped! Cats are used to smaller creatures running away from them, not at them!

They were actually fairly calm. I was warned ahead of time that the hypos were feisty, so it was expected.

2 of the others were a little nippy, but I can't say I can blame them.

They were all hungry, very hungry.... (when shipping snakes its best to not feed them for at least a week prior....and because of shipping days being uncertain, they weren't fed for 2wks prior).

I find snakes to be really easy to ship... moreso with the larger ones, you can put them in a bag and they just relax and "sleep" because they can't see anything. Little babies are a bit harder to ship, more risks involved, but it can be done safely.

The only crappy part of shipping.... here in Canada, the only legal way to ship reptiles is by Air cargo which runs at least $125....whereas in the US, there's more shipping options, (Fed Ex I believe is the main choice) for about $60 or so....
