A friend's sister will be moving, and can not take her 4-foot ball python with her.
She is looking for a new home for the critter, most likely in December/January.

Experience with snakes preferred (she may ask for a vet-reference, I'm not sure) - she is
not giving up her baby willingly, and wants to find a "forever" home.

If interested, you can contact me, I will pass your info on.

...I take it you haven't been having much luck helping to place the critter?

You've seen our setup for Chocolate... if you feel the cage we have would be humanely big enough for the two of them let me know.

What is the age and sex? (Himself is making discouraging noises already as it is, and I am sure those will increase if there would be any remote chance of, um... progeny.)

if Chocolate is still in the same cage I last saw: I don't think it'd be NEARLY big enough. I don't know how snakes react to shared space. I'd be VERY hesitant about that. My understanding is this fellow comes with his own gear though.

I don't know age/sex... could find out. (What breed is Chocolate?)

Let me know if you want more info.

Chocolate is also a ball, hence my hesitancy in case your friend's is a female. I don't believe he's ever been bred, so there's no tellin' if he shoots little snake blanks or what.

Any potential owner is going to want to know age, sex, whether they eat live prey or "micicles", and docility/handling level. You, or she, might want to draw up something to post on [ profile] herpers, preferably with a picture of the critter and her location.

i figured any potential owner could be put in touch with the current owner for that info... just like I'd do for you if you said Your Cuteness(tm) could be persuaded (or have his arm twisted). (FYI, I just found out female, and eating live rats. Getting the rest of the info ASAP.

I was unaware of that community though... thank you! i'll pass that on and suggest that Morgan get the pertinent info and get it posted ASAP!

A picture will help especially if it's a non-standard ball, like a morph, weird colors/albinos move very very fast and she might even get someone to buy her snake if that's the case. Ordinary balls are very common so don't usually move well for cash, but if it's a "free to good home" sort of thing she might get a nibble.

Telling the age/sex info, etc. up front lets people who might be interested in breeding (or not!) know ahead of time what they're dealing with.

Other potentially helpful places to refer to/post her info are [ profile] snakecommunity, [ profile] ballpythonsrus, and [ profile] adopt_a_pet.

Try contacting [ profile] seorgia
She is [ profile] purpura's housemate. She loves snakes.

thank you - already did, via purpura... snake is too large for their comfort zone given size of kids and other pets.

Since SCA_east apparently purged the comment I'm not sure if you got it...

There is a reptile show in Huntington on the 1st

She wont be able to sell the snake there herself, but she might be able to make a verbal connection or find someone who will advertise it at their own booth.
