PostSubject: Any VaHerpers in/near Staunton?    Sat Jun 14, 2014 5:22 pm

I have a tiny BP collection and breed my own rats, mice, etc.   I just started breeding rats and I'm trying to get all the snakes switched over to them.  In doing so, I'll end up with some surplus that are too big to feed off.  

The local pet store will take my extras sometimes when I can manage to coordinate a drop off time with the manager and give me a tiny store credit.  

I'd like to find a local snake friend, that could help me with my extra (medium & large) rats when I have them.  I don't have a huge abundance of feeders, just a couple few until I can get the mice gone and get a system going with the rats.

Or maybe someone can point me in the direction of a deal on a C02 kit and freezer or a good sized boa that needs rehoming.  Wink 

Thanks,
Shanna

I got my CO2 tank off of ebay, just check the hydrostatic test date. They have to get retested every five years of age which can outweigh the price of a new some tanks. Same goes with paintball tanks which I believe would be more towards what you need. You can use a paintball gun tank remote as the line and valve to fill your chamber.

Hi Shanna! I'm in Charlottesville and occasionally need rats (when I can't get them from my normal source). Are you ever over the mountain?

I don't make it up that way very often, unless we're trying to visit family.  I can shoot you a message if we're headed to C-Ville and I have extra rats.  

Hopefully, this will be temporary until I can find the ying & yang between the BPs and feeders rats like I had with the mice and SF's.  

I haven't been working with the rats long.  Every 3~ish weeks, I have about 5 extra live medium/large rats that I'd be happy to give away to a fellow VA Herper.  The pet store gives me 75 cents to a dollar in store credit and it can be difficult to coordinate a drop off time with them.

I'll probably have at least 5-10 in the next 2+ weeks.  Shoot me a PM if you're out this way and I can let you know if I have any extras.
