    Question Moving across borders

    So I'm potentially moving to Mexico City in a couple of years, all the way from Vancouver. I will be there for university so it'll be a couple of years, and I'd like to bring my ball python if there's any possible way.

    If this is too stressful I'm sure I can find someone to watch him for a fee, or something. I'm trying to consider my options now so perhaps by the time comes I can have a comfortable transition for him.

    Any experiences, feedback? Ty!

    So my boyfriend said something about it being a no-no in Mexico. Does anyone know where I could even look up this information?

    I'm not sure how legit this site is but it sounds like you will need to get an import certificate for the snake, which will cost about $112

    When in doubt contact the consulate for guidelines. Importing reptiles might be tricky but if anyone would be able to help, I would assume that would be where to start

    No, she currently lives in Vancouver, Canada and is going to be moving to Mexico City. That's the capital of Mexico.
