What is it with all of these people selling reptiles that do not want to ship? Is the the expense or trouble of doing it? Or do most people think that it is hard on the animal? I have been shipping reptiles, venomous and non venomous for a number of years and have never had a dead, injured, or sick reptile arrive to anyone. It just gets so frustrating when you email or call about something you would like to have and the second you mention shipping, well, its like you just contracted the plague right before there eyes. I guess every person has there own reason why they wont ship, but come on, if your breeding reptiles to sell at some point you should probably figure out how to properly ship them. I found a snake i wanted to add to my collection, and i called the guy about it. We chatted about it for several minutes and i mentioned that it would need to be shipped and the he hesitated. I told him that i would send him the box, shipping label, snake bag, ect. All he would need to do is put the snake in the bag, then in the box, seal the box, and put on the label. He then explained to me that it was just to much work. SAD!
