I have 8 Royals at the moment (I say ATM cos I'm hoping to add 3 more v soon) and think I really should get them all probed to confirm I have what I think I have. All snakes purchased from reputable breeders\shops as youngsters (some I've had for nearly 2 years) so they should be, but...

So you're selling snakes and the prospective buyer wants to probe them, do you let him/her?
I'm just curious. I'm of the opinion that I wouldn't let anyone I didn't know well probe my snakes, even if they were going to buy them.
Ive recently bought a set of snake probes.
What i want to know is how to decide what size probe to use.

Can anyone help???
