I have a story...

Remember this little guy...his name was Cherries...

Well, about 2 weeks after we got him we noticed he wasn't doing so well. His skin was all wrinkly and his nostril looked like he had a cold...we thought he was going to shed the week before but never did and that made us worry...oh, and he wasn't eating. So we took him back (PetCo has a 15 day warranty) and traded for his brother. The same look and everything, Connor named him Curvy because he liked to curve around the logs in the tank. Curvy and Slither got along really well and even cuddled a little bit, if you can imagine such a thing. The time came to feed little Curvy and he ate his little mouse within a few minutes...we were so excited cuz he was eating! Well, about two days later we noticed a regurgitated mouse in the tank...and Curvy was the culprit...What do you do? Regurgitating is a really bad sign for snakes...so back to the pet store we went. We ended up with a few more pointers on how to keep him healthly and so we headed home with Curvy one more time...and we fed him...and he regurgitated AGAIN!!! This morning Chris took him back and got store credit...Poor Poor Curvy!!!

Rhett is devistated and I would really like to get him another snake but I am so leary about buying one from them again...My two little boys literally play with their snakes every single day and they love them...I feel so bad...What do I do? We have $40 bucks credit at PetCo but I REFUSE to buy another one from the Bountiful location...should I go to the Layton one?...Help???

I don't know diddly about snakes but I do know about pitching a fit when the situation calls.... I would ask for cash back instead of an in store credit... you gave them a second chance already, you know?! :) Good Luck, love the BI+%$# woman....

Please come to my yard. We have lots of little snakes and a big one too. I hate them with a passion and really want to get rid of them- but we live by a field, so they will always be around. Yuck- glad someone likes snakes though.

We have that trouble with fish from PetsMart. They always die and we have to take them back, no matter what kind of fish. But every fish we've bought from WalMart lives FOREVER...
Darn it, good luck!
