    First off, this snake was a birthday gift for my husband. I have actually always hated snakes. So me being a good wife I surprised my husband with the animal he’s always dreamt of! My husband was over the moon but I was still super stand offish and totally thought that my husband would care for him while I kept my distance. How the tables have turned! First day we got him we were surprised that when we opened the box he wasn’t in the little container. He was kinda roaming the box but still totally secure with how they carefully package their snakes. He had lots of security and styrofoam to keep him safe! We put him in his new home and it took a day for him to stop being visibly stressed out. Which is totally understandable after the trip he had! We let him settle in and left him alone for a few days. Now here we are and he has won my heart! I have handled him even more than my husband has because I’m home all day. He handles SO WELL! He has eaten twice now and has no problem eating his pinky mice! He’s a great eater and has totally made himself at home in what we’ve given him. Every time that I go to handle him he comes right to me. He’s 100% not aggressive! He’s so chill he just hangs out on me and is curious of his surroundings. His face melts my heart. He has little specks of white on his face and the coloring on his belly is gorgeous! Snakes at sunset has been awesome with messaging me back with any questions I have and I feel totally comfortable asking them anything that I need to. All in all our experience with snakes at sunset has been a 10! This snake has totally opened my eyes to the species and helped me along the way while learning about them. Totally recommend ordering from them and if you get a guy even half as great as mine I promise you’ll be so happy that you did!

    Wants nice to move

    The snake is in good health but he will not eat unless the mouse is moving I had to drag a thawed pinkie for him to eat

    Beautiful healthy little girl. She’s already eating frozen/thawed pinkies. Our family loves her and she’s awesome.

    healthy but skittish

    I received my beautiful California king snake in the mail after ordering him 3 days prior. He’s been healthy and doing well since I got him. The only thing I would say is that my snake is very very skittish and afraid of tongs so I’ve been having to feed him live mice.

    beautifully packaged, and a very healthy young lady

    She came in a safe and secured package, and she was perfectly healthy. They told me when she was last fed which was very helpful. And she is exactly what I ordered :)
