She defecated in her shipping bag and was a mess. I got her cleaned up and noticed a few little marks on her neck (you can see them in the bend) that look like small rodent bites, but they will come out in the next shed. She is very nice and is sitting inside my shirt staying nice and warm right now.

That is frustrating to no end that she has bite marks. The seller should have mentioned it, in my opinion. I don't have a large collection, so I'm able to watch and make sure my snakes that eat live prey do not get bitten. I can understand why someone with a large collection may not have that sort of time...on the other hand, how hard is it to mention it in an email??? Integrity.

She is very lovely. Glad the marks will come out.

Careful John, that snake has the spider gene in her. Laughing Though, I have yet to see any wobble at all, even a slight one.

Dagan, what really surprised me is that the guy I bought her from is fairly well known and has lots of positive ratings on the BOI. However, the snake is 150 grams and was shipped in a 6X6X6 box with a 40 hour heat pack (proper one) and a hand warmer (too hot) taped to the top with duct tape. The duct tape came loose and both of the heat pads were on the news paper stacked on top of the snake. If she had sat for any length of time, I think she would have over heated. I never ship babies in anything less than a 6X9X12 to give them room to move away or towards the heat. My heat pack is always securely taped with packing tape, which is much stickier.

You would think that someone who sells high end snakes would at least pack the thing professionally and responsibly. I negotiated a good price, but it was still a costly purchase. I was a little shocked to see the small box and the packing.

I've set her up in quarantine and hopefully she will be no worse for wear. The more I look at her, the more I like her.
