    Re: The quarantine process

    so if i get 3 snakes from the same person, is it necessary to keep all 3 separate for a while, if they had all been racked together anyway? Just curious

    i would keep them away from any others that didnt come from the same person.
    im sure if they were housed together they would likely have the same thing if they did have anything. also you didnt say but if i got them at different times i would separate

    Re: The quarantine process

    Thank you so much for all of this information! It was excellent!! I knew that I was going to the Reptile show this weekend and (not that my hubby knew) but I was surely going to pick something up. This gave me tons of information to teach my family in regards to the newbie in the house. Trust me we are following this to the T. Including coming home from the show and washing out clothes right away and taking showers. I now have a very educated family in the QT process and we are all taking it VERY seriously!!

    Re: The quarantine process

    I am interested in buying a spotted python. I have seached all over the web but I cant find anything that has diseases that they can get. So basically RI IBD and mites is what I can think of. Would I have to quarantine a spotted python from a collection of ball pythons?

    Re: The quarantine process

    Since doing more research, I've extended my quarantine period from 90 days to one full year. This limits my breeding projects, but I can breed the animals I have in quarantine to each other, and still keep them separate from the rest of my collection.

    People often quarantine because they're afraid of one of the serious illnesses that can wipe out large portions of a collection--but Paramyxo can incubate for up to 10 months, so what good does a 90 day quarantine do? It may be inconvenient to quarantine longer, but there is nothing safe about a 90 day quarantine. It simply is not sufficient to protect against dangerous disease.

    Re: The quarantine process

    that was exactly my thought process - I am getting a new RTB this weekend and it is coming from a very reputable source but I intend to qt for 90 days since I have two BP's also.

    But as stated, even with a 90 day qt - you still really aren't ever safe from something serious like IBD - is this correct.

    Thank you.

    Re: The quarantine process

    If I were to build a small rack just for quarantine, i would have to restart quarantine for any of the snakes in it if a new snake came in right?
