Default New snake

Hi there, I was wondering if you guys could help me.

I am currently awaiting delivery of a CB12 albino royal python from crystal place reptiles. I have been told it is feeding on large mice, but not whether they are live or frozen/thawed.

Could anyone on here with experience with CPR please advise which method of feeding it is most likely to be.

Thanks

Hey

I can't imagine they would be selling you a live feeder without CLEARLY stating that. Never used them myself mind.

Is it not best to just give them a buzz?

Yes royals can be fussy eaters but I would think they would be selling you a DF feeder.

No problem.

Is this your first snake or just an addition? You'll have to stick around and let us know what you've got and how you get on.

I'd assume the same as Chance, unless they have stated it is a live feeder it's probably defrost as that's the common practice over here.

From all account's CPR are a great place to buy snake's

CPR have a very good reputation in the UK.
All their snakes are on frozen thawed(F/T).
They would/will not sell you a live feeder without stating.
Buy with confidence from Darren.

Thanks to everyone for quick responses

I had a royal python years ago which I had to rehome to other commitments at the time.

I have had a bearded dragon for several years now also.

I have always loved snakes and the albino royals looks so nice I decided to get one as my first snake in my return to serpents.

I am eagerly awaiting her delivery which I'm hoping should be in the next couple of weeks ( weather).

Thanks
Alan
