: I am currently awaiting delivery of my ball python and due to the fact that the breeder I purchased from LIED about fed ex being able to ship, it is somewhere in a hot truck, NOT being delivered.
: I purchased a snake through a breeder on kingsnake.com. I am currently fighting to have my snake shipped. I was told there would be no problem shipping through FedEx, but apparently FedEx does not allow it. Not only did I waste my whole day from 7am to4pm waiting on the snake to be delivered, but more importantly, there is a Ball Python on some hot truck right now not being delivered. It is now 6:12pm and I am questioning the fate of that poor snake. I am highly upset with the breeder for not being honest but right now am focusing on saving that little guy. If you buy a snake from a breeder, don't let them feed you lies. FedEx does not allow the shipping of live animals and it is more trouble than you would ever imagine for yourself, and more importantly for the snake.
::: I'm sure you were definitely NOT lied to. I'm sure no one ever told you FEDEX would deliver a Snake. No one ever said Fedex Does allow shipping of live animals. I'm sure "LIVE ANIMAL" was not written on the box. I'm sure NOTHING was written on the Box. FEDEX is NEXT-DAY Delivery. AND It is quite rare that a Fedex package is lost and doesn't arrive on time the following day.
So I'm really shocked that this whole entire incident happened. You didn't do your home work prior to ordering your snake....if you had you would have known that FedEx didn't "officially" allow shipment of live animals in the first place....
