    I am looking to rehome an adult mated pair of Burmese pythons. Pick up only....we will not ship.

    They have been lovingly & maticulously kept for 12 years by a couple, who are retiring and moving to Mexico. Unfortunately they can not take their snakes with them.

    The snakes are aproximately 14 feet long and feeding on rabbits. Their enclosure is a built in structure so will not be included with them, but I believe they have transport containers for them.

    Experienced keepers only, will be considered as potential adopters.

    I hope you find someone soon before they begin to eat you out of house and home!

    Merlin, I bet you still don't have herps in your kitchen =)
    Now that I think of it, do you really need a kitchen? ;)

    Unfortunately, I don't have the room either (for right now). I am curious though, where are they at for pick up?

    Man oh man! My favorite Burm!! If only I wasn't so small and hubby wasn't such a snake-a-phobe! :( The sad part is...I even have the ROOM for them!! :eek: Sometimes husbands just need to close their eyes and let the woman do what she wants! LOL ;)
    Boy would I ever get myself into trouble then! :p

    Jem....that's why opposites attract, to keep us in balance...grounded, ok....to keep our homes from becoming completely overrun !! How ever you look at it, it can be a good thing.....sometimes.

    GAsnakeman, it's in SW Florida, Sarasota.

    And Merlin, you were actually the first person who popped into my head when I got the request to place them......my hope is to find someone like you to take them. I'd hate to see these loved Pets turned into just breeding machines.

    Wow :eek: I easily have the room ( My dad has offered his large unused basement for my herps numerous times) and an uncle near Sarasota BUT I have to be honest when I say I just dont think I have the expirience and time to handle two Burms that size, i also have a small child who is about 2 feet tall and tends to make a lot of sounds that can be easily mistaken for a rabbit so I guess that rules me out :(

    you guys are crackin' me up....

    They are pretty, though aren't they. I've restricted myself to only keeping herps that couldn't realistically eat small children. I felt it were only right.

    I wished Jay lived closer too....

    Lyn, you can show this thread to your kids and tell them that the ones that misbehave will be traded for those lovely snakes ;)

    I just so happen to be moving into a herp friendly apartment, finally and I was actually in search of a few herps to keep me company. Since Florida will not allow me have what I truely desire yet, I wouldn't mind taking these two in. Any terms and conditions outside of experience?

    I'm in Gainesville, Florida.

    I live in Florida but Dubious, the one Burmese that I have, is more than enough snake for me. BTW, I still have a California Kingsnake up for adoption for those of you snake lovers who would prefer to adopt a smaller, less dangerous species. :D
