I had a similar situation. I had a boa shipped to me this summer, UPS 'saver'. I didn't pick the shipping, it was included in the price. The 'saver' part means by the end of the next day. The snake wasn't delivered until 6pm, making it 27 hours or so in shipping. I live in the south and we are lucky to see highs in the low 90's. It's usually much worse. This being said, I thought the shipper would have added cold packs or something. When I took the boa out, she was warm to the touch.
She was alive and just looked a little stressed. The next morning I looked at her and she seemed fine. The day after that, when I looked at her, she was belly up dead. I know animals can die from too much heat, but I would have thought it would have happened sooner.
Do you think it was the long shipping period, the heat, something she had, or something I did wrong?
