How to move a python to a new house !!
Help please !!
is the snake moving to a new house or you and your family moving house?.
just put your snake into a suitable container, ie click clack or pillow case and handle with care.
How far are you moving?.WHEN THE CAT IS AWAY,CHANCES ARE IT HAS BEEN RUN OVER.
moving houses? I put mine in pillowcases, have taken them in a small click clack as well with no problems.
Pillowcase, and in a click clack. Seatbelted in. Haha
Pillowcase. But turn it inside out then place the snake in as I've been told from numinous people that the lint that gets trapped in the corners can cause a problem.
The snake will be right in there for hours.
Yeah the family is moving house. Ill probably put my python in a pillow case, i think its the enclosure thats going to be the hard part.
How long can my python stay in a pillow case? It wouldnt be overnight or anything but it may take a while until we drive to the new house and then set up the enclosure all again and stuff.
thanks for the help guys
Do love the amount of detail given here... How far are you moving? Assuming you are moving and not just changing enclosures. What sort of snake and how big? You might be hard pressed to find a pillowcase to take a full size jungle python.

Or use a doona cover Damo?
Had pythons in freight for 3 or more days before,
so should be ok for a fair period of time.

Doona would be warmer!grow a pair
Sorry about not adding much detail, im very busy.
I have a jungle python which is about a year and 5-6months old. We are moving about 45 minutes to an hour away.
Should i leave moving the snake to very last or first up, out of all the furniture in the house ect? Im just worried i guess, i dont want to end up with a snake gone missing or even worse dead because, surely im just over reacting and it shouldnt be hard right??
i drove from brisbane to coffs harbour with one of my womas when i picked it up , i just put it in a pillow case inside a click clack , also if youve got a probe thermometer cant hurt to whack that in with it so you can just check the temp whilst you move him just as a precaution so you know if it gets a little warm in there
as for when to do it its up to you really cant see it making all that much difference

Put it in a pillow case, pillow case in a container (so it doesn't get moved around while driving). Can easily be there for a day or two. Don't panic, they're hardy and can be moved any which way or any time as long as they're not in the sun.

Pretty much what everyone else has said, although I would suggest moving the snake and the enclosure in one trip, just so that when you get to the new place, you can put him straight in the enclosure. Even if it's not fully set up etc, it's just to avoid potential issues such as him going missing or getting squished etc.
