  1. This place has not disappointed 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Oct 2019

    Both of my Western Hognose I purchased from here are healthy and I can tell well fed. One was a baby and my most recent one a juvenile. These guys are so inquisitive and cool. Two thumbs up for snakesatsunset for their healthy reptiles and their promptness of delivery!

  2. Healthy Western Hognose 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Aug 2019

    I ordered a male Western Hognose which shipped on time. He arrived well packaged and looks very healthy. I put him in his tub to acclimatize to his new home. The next day he was very active, so I decided to try to feed him a f/t pinky. He would not take it from tongs, so I left it on a small plate and covered his tub. Within 10 minutes he was munching down and ate no problem. Happy with my purchase!

  3. Very Impressive 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2019

    Waited 12 days before writing a review. Ordered my male on a Thursday(Florida) and he was here Friday(Washington State) morning at 10am. He arrived in great health with a quickly developing personality. He adapted quickly to his new enclosure and was making it his own in no time(3 Days). He is currently in a 10 g enclosure with shredded aspen substrate, a water bowl on the left, heating pad on the right, his hide sitting directly over his heat pad, and some plastic/washable leafs for shade and cover. He ate his first frozen/thawed pinky after about 5 days of acclimation. There were some troubles getting him to eat it plain so I had to add a drop of tuna juice to the pinky once thawed and he downed it no problem. Now he will get 2 pinkies every 3-4 days until I feel like he is ready for a fuzzy and I will figure out that feeding schedule when the time comes. You wouldn’t expect it but he actually enjoys a little 10-15 minute handling session per day. I try not to handle for 1-2 days after feeding so he can properly digest his meal and I don’t accidentally hurt him. His personality is hilarious. He has a full blown attitude inside of his enclosure but once I get him out he is so relaxed and friendly. This is my first snake and I could not be more happy with how things are going. Snakes At Sunset is doing things the right way and you can tell by the health and personalities of their animals.

    Thank you for flawless first experience. Anyone reading this on the fence about ordering, GO FOR IT!

  4. friendly snake friendly customer service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2019

    I got a female hognose because I was told they were more docile and not so picky eating. She is great! Very friendly, hyper, strong, and healthy! She ate hours after I received her. Could not be happier

  5. Happy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2019

    I'm very happy with this feisty little snake! Shes very healthy and active. This was my first time ordering a animal online and it went flawlessly. I definitely recommend snakes at sunset. If you're hesitant about ordering online like I was dont be this is a great company.

  6. Cuter than cute! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2019

    Sydney, my new baby hog nose, is so sweet! I put him in his little 5 gallon tank with aspen and newspaper underneath. He ate like a champ yesterday morning! Downed his pinky, butt first, like he’s been doing it for years! Very sweet and docile in my hand, easy to pick up. Burrowing just like a hoggie.
    I’m totally thrilled with the whole transaction with Snakes at Sunset. Was just a little over 12 hours from when I ordered to when he was delivered. Couldn’t ask for more than that!
    Will recommend to all my snake and reptile friends! Thanks for a great experience!

  7. would purchase again 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jun 2019

    I waited quite a while to review. It has been over a month. I wanted him to be settled and the purchase excitement to ware off, but my hognose is doing great. He came on a Thursday, the day the animals normally eat. He started eating that day (frozen thawed pinkies), I didn't want to make him wait another week to eat. He has been eating for me consistently. Took to handling very well. Was hissing at first, and false striking. Now is calmer than my cat. Active, digging and exploring the cage for a few hours a day. No signs of mites or birth defects. The staff really seem to care about the animals they sell, will not ship when weather may negatively impact animal and answered my questions via email if I reached out to them. I should have gotten a snake long ago, and would Absolutely recommend snakes at sunset to anyone looking for a pet.

  8. always wanted this 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th May 2019

    Miss attitude came in good shape, feed her that same day ate with no problems after picking her up she calms down squirms a bit while holding. Cute snake already hissing and striking every time I go near her enclosure or filling her water dish. Active, energetic snake explores, digging around very happy with my purchase. This is my third snake from ordering from this website all been very good experience no issues

  9. perfect first pet! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2019

    My 9 year old son bought this snake with his own money after I helped him research and choose what we hoped would be a great first pet for himself. I've never owned a reptile myself or really known many people with reptiles but since my husband has allergies to most mammals a reptile was one of our best options. We fell in love with the idea of a Western Hognose after seeing a picture on IG and doing some research about it. After a lot more research I settled on Snakes at Sunset as our place to purchase from. Living in central PA, we didn't have a lot of local options so short of driving several hours to a reptile expo or buying online I chose online. Anyhow, after placing the order we did have to wait a couple more days for the weather to become more temperate for shipping, I also had a little trouble getting a hold of someone at the store to ask what size of pinky/frequency the snake was currently eating (had to order those online too!), but overall what mattered to me was getting a healthy good-tempered snake. I asked the guy I talked to about feeding if he could also make sure to choose whichever snake he thought would be good for a little boy, if there was an option. I have no idea if he did or did not but the snake we received has been perfect! Super friendly, healthy, easy-going, a great eater (I was a little nervous about feeding issues since my son absolutely wanted a male and I read that could be an issue especially with the males), and is just a content, interesting little dude all around. We are so happy and grateful!

  10. Baby hognose snake 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Mar 2019

    Bought a baby western hognose snake that just arrived yesterday. We just love him already. He was very well packaged and arrived when promised. He was fussy at first when he was unpackaged but calmed way down fairly quickly. Thank you Snakes At Sunset.

  11. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Nov 2018

    I absolutely love this little snake. Arrived on time and in great condition. I have had no issues and have had it for a few months now.

  12. cute healthy noodle 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Sep 2018

    He arrived in great condition and was clearly well cared for. I did have some problems with him at first, but I don't blame Snakes At Sunset. For anyone curious: I trouble getting him to eat at first and have had to scent the pinkies with tuna and put him in a smaller container, but I suspect it was stress that caused this and that it'll be fairly easy to switch him over to unscented. He was also terrified of me for the first two weeks but considering he's a baby and that he had to be switched to a new enclosure two different times, I'm not surprised.

    I've since been able to get him used to being handled and he's mellowed out A LOT. He's super friendly now and doesn't mind being handled at all as long as there are no sudden movements. He's actually my first snake, so I'm happy to say he's been really relaxed and easy to care for since the hiccup with feeding was sorted.

    Also, he's ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE and I love him.

    Overall, I'm very happy with my new baby boy and would definitely buy from Snakes At Sunset again.

  13. Well tempered Hognose 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jul 2018

    I was initially skeptical of buying a snake mail order, but Snakes At Sunset has made me a believer.

    Snake arrived as ordered in good condition. He was fed the next day with no problems. He appears to be more or less hand-tamed already. Looking forward to having him for many years.

  19. decent condition 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Sep 2017

    She arrived earlier than expexted! When I opened the package to get her out she was packed pretty well. Only reason they got 4 stars is because she was skinny. But she ate the first day in my care, would consider ordering another from here!
