    is there any way you can hook up a camera for the viv? I was just thinking if you had a camera you could watch it over the net and let your gma know if something is wrong. You could buy the camera, and then return it back to amazon after the 3 weeks.

    Unfortunately I don't think this is a good idea. I'd be way too worried about mites, diseases, etc...

    And yeah, I wouldn't want to put my 80 year old grandparent in that position either, especially considering she's not experienced with snakes.

    I hope you can find a trustworthy person who's got experience keeping snakes and can help you out.

    Good luck

    Pet stores can often have mites. It's not unheard of for pet store animals to bring mites into a home, so bringing a presumably healthy animal into an environment where you can't be sure it's clean is unwise.
    Also, I wouldn't trust the vast majority of pet store employees with my animals.

    That statement was made as a response to boarding at a pet store.

    I'd rather someone come in to take care of my snake every 2-3 days if I had to be gone for an extended period.

    Do you have any friends you would trust to check in? I trade pet sitting with my friend so neither of us have to pay anyone or trust random people with our collections. She has everything I have though parrots, snakes, tarantulas, rats etc, so we can trade off with each other. I would definitely want someone comfortable with the animals if they had to go in though, so maybe train a friend lol. I had to rehouse one of my friends tarantula the last time I watched them because of a weird mold outbreak in its container. Most random people wouldn’t want to deal, or even of noticed something wrong or try rehousing even if they were being paid. It’s definitely hard finding people sometimes!
