My beautiful and healthy girl
Kierstin Hedin (Keene, NH) 2/14/2017 10:06 AM
Siersha arrived at the Fedex facility warm and lively. RBM's customer service rep Jessica reached out to me almost immediately after I placed my order to inform me that with current weather conditions (it's super cold in NH) we would need to have an alternate plan for my snake's arrival. She found the nearest Fedex facility and emailed me to coordinate with my schedule. When I told her that this would be my first snake, she was excited for me and sent me a whole bunch of info on Kingsnake care and handling. It was so clear to me how well the animals are treated at RBM and the care that goes into every transaction. My King Snake arrived healthy, and after letting her acclimate to her surroundings for a few days I held her and had no problems, she's super friendly and eats really well. I will definitely be ordering from RBM again and will be telling anyone looking for a reptile to order from here. Thank you guys for my amazing girl Siersha! She is growing so fast!
