    shipping a 6 foot red tail boa.

    Do any of you know how to mail a big snake like this? My father will be mailing her to me due to her original owner (his friend) not wanting her anymore. And he and I both have never shipped an animal and especially not a big snake like this. How much would it be? do we need any licences? He's shipping from washington state to texas. And how should we ship her? What would we need?

    Depends on her weight would probably need to go in a wood crate via Delta dash there is a YouTube video of how to ship large snakes that might help you

    Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.
