So I'm visiting Florida for spring break and really wanted to get a new snake, they're a lot cheaper here than they are in southern California. And a friend of mine is a Gecko breeder who knows a guy who only breeds red tail boas, he said he'd sell me one of the 2 month old babies that doesn't have the best pattern (which I don't really mind it's still beautiful) for $30, which is great because the cheapest I've found them was for $100. The only problem is that the airline doesn't allow snakes on planes, you have to pay $125 to have them shipped underneath in the animal cargo bay, which is stupid considering dogs up to 70 pounds are aloud on for free if they are "emotional support dogs". Why can't I just put him in a sealed pillow case in a box with airholes and then put him in the bottom of my backpack? It's is way quieter than a dog. But yeah does anybody know of a way to smuggle him on? The airport I'm flying out of has the newer security at the gates where you stand with your arms up, Im pretty sure he would move around if he was on my body. But maybe somehow in my bag?
