There are over 3,300 different species of snake but far fewer are available to keep as pets. Some of the more commonly kept snake families include the king snakes, milk snakes, garter snakes and rat snakes (which includes the always popular corn snake). Some snake species in particular corn snakes and some king snakes have been kept as pets for over 30 years which has given time for natural colour mutations to be found and selectively bred for. These selectively bred colour forms are often referred to as ‘Morphs’, there are now over 500 different corn snake morphs alone.
WHY CANT I BUY ONLINE?
Because we are so committed to animal welfare we feel it would be inappropriate and irresponsible to list live animals as if they were just another product. We ask that you contact the store on 01276423137 so that we can ensure animals are being sent to a suitable home. You can still purchase animals via a digital invoice or Paypal, we simply prefer the sale of live animals to be a little bit more sensitive than general internet shopping allows.
CAN YOU DELIVER MY ANIMAL TO ME?
We are able to use Walkers Euro Transport (fully insured and Defra registered animal courier) to ship animals anywhere in the UK and to some European destinations. Consignments are collected from us every Wednesday and arrive to you within 24hrs on the next day (Thursday). The charge for this service is £50 per consignment (max 15 animals) anywhere within England and Wales, the cost is £55 for anywhere in Scotland and some selected European destinations.
