When your snake arrives
You should already have an enclosure set up to correct temperature and humidity before purchasing. That being said when your snake arrives via FedEx its a good idea to leave them alone for the first two week until they adjust and have taken food. The shipping process can stress the animals a great deal that's why it is a good idea to give them time to adjust and eat before handling. Don't worry if your ball python doesn't eat right away,it is common for them to refuse food from time to time. Especially when just being shipped across the country and put in a new environment. That's why I don't sell snake with only two meals in them. If you purchased a baby snake here They have had five good meals before I put them up for sale. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me I will be happy to help.
