It's not that hard to find places that provide this service for reptiles if you can find one you trust
Could be very costly if you have lots and as having anything under double figures is seen as not having many snakes I would think it would cost more than the holiday for some people round hear

I'm going on holiday in 7 weeks, for 10 days... I think there are pet sitters that will look after your reptiles, but not 100% sure.. I haven't arranged anything so far, think I might just put in 2 water bowls and leave them. They can all go 10 days without food easy, none poo in their bowls anyway so they should be fine..

Btw I have 4 snakes, no lizards..

Reptiles are low maintenance and I love the fact that it doesn't take me hours to provide for them like it does the dogs. I dont see the snakes as pets, they're my passion. However, as much as I adore my snakes, I'd never be without a dog in the house...

Either way, this "increase in sales" has increased from zero (or very close to it). It's hardly a surge.
