    This is the second lot of snakes stolen as someone is in the process of moving!!
    Hope Kris gets his snakes back, I think people forget that they are pets and are loved just as much as a cat or a dog.

    I noticed that too, just don't know if it's significant or not. The other one was at the Gold Coast I think...not that far away... :?

    all we can hope is they get a nasty bloody shock when they dive their hands into the pollow cases in hopes of pulling a python and come up with a ven attached ..... I hope very much that the snakes get recovered and returned to their rightful owner .... its shocking makes you start to think your snakes shouldn't be kept at home addresses and kept in a secure hidden location ..

    People need to have there set up more secure......dont mix with dhs.........dont bring attention to your home be professional about your hobby..... just be careful who you mix with.....dont leave yourself open.....make a baririer....eg...locks bolts alarms time management ...cause time is what it takes...so if some one can break enter to your home and get a way with such items in a small amount of time then you dont have the right deterrent from stopping some one entering your home..... Reptiles cant be replaced.

    You should talk to the guy who had his snakes stolen from the goldy and see is if there are any people who you both know and know where you both live

    that is terrible ...and as was said ,it seems like it was done by people that knew Kris and his doings ,which makes it a good chance that these tools were so called mates untill this ...

    not good, hope you get your snakes back kris.

    should serve as a good warning for anyone selling hatchlings this year not to do business at home.

    It'll be treated like any other break-in and robbery sadly. The difference is a TV and DVD player can be easily replaced and ARE covered by insurance. This isn't! I think with larger collections you really do have to get better security. Bars on windows, deadlocks on doors and at the very least a monitored security system that either rings your own mobile, or a security company. It's really appauling that there are people out there who are willing to commit this sort of act and target a hobbyist, and reality there is very little you can do to protect yourself other than the fore-mentioned. I do hope they get caught, but I wouldn't hold your breath. Sorry to hear.

    hmm this seams very femilar from the other one which happened just as he was all packed up for a move and had all his snakes in containers and bags ready to go. yet these turds would for sure know them and pretended to be there mates till they thought time was right to strike. also its interesting to know they picked 2 large BREEDERS not just the odd small hobbiest and doing the Huist in breeding season when all females would be producing eggs or close to it. bloody irritating that there are so many *** holes out there that pray on others fortune and destroy so many lives at the same time.
