Things to know when buying a snake online.

For first time buyers.

If you have never bought a snake online, then there are a few things you should know, before you actually take the plunge, and buying one.

First, it is important that you trust the dealer you buy from. There are so many breeders who sell their snakes online, and just picking out a website, and sending them your money, is not the way to go. If you find a breeder, and look at the photos they have on their site, and you think you want to buy one of their snakes, then the next thing you need to do, is find out a few things about the dealer.

Will they be there for you, if something is wrong with your snake? How much do they charge for shipping? Do they guarantee live arrival? Some breeders can be very friendly before the sale, and then not so friendly after the sale.

A good way to find out the general reputation of a breeder, is to visit snake and reptile forums. If someone has had a bad experience, it has a tendency to get out there where people can see.  

First Time Snake Buyers

If you are a person who is thinking about buying a snake for the first time, I would suggest reading as much about the snake you are considering, before you every start shopping for your snake.

Snakes are living breathing creatures just like a cat or a dog. They also come with responsibility just like a cat or dog. You should know all that is required to keep your snake happy, and healthy before you buy it, not after. You can learn a lot buy reading online, but buying a good reference book, should be part of the preparation for snake ownership. To the right are a few books on keeping snakes, further down the page are books for specific species.

Corn Snakes are second only to Ball Pythons, when it comes to number of morphs in a snake species. Many experienced breeders started with Corn Snakes, before expanding to other species. 

I have personally kept Corn Snakes in the past, and in my opinion, Corn Snakes are a good snake for beginners.
