Default snake imports

just wondering how often people do large imports from different countries.
also if they are treated for parasites when they arrive by the persons in charge are there still any precautions that should be taken?

just wondering as im after something small and unusual to maybe start a new breeding project.

cheers
josh

They are rarely treated by the importer, depending on how it is done. In general, where imports are done publicly ie the African import being advertised, they will arrive and then will be couriered out to each buyer. You should then keep them isolated for quarantine, have faecal tests done, and treat for internal parasites.
