have you sent money yet? use extreme caution when dealing with rayís reptilia. if i were you i would shop elsewhere. a friend of mine got ripped of from them, and i have heard a lot of bad stuff about them. go to www.faunaclassifieds.com. check out the Board Of Inquiry, there is yet another complaint about rayís reptilia on there.

Ray ships snakes by way of the post office.

Ray sends imported Male B.P. instead of CBB Female and steals pictures from N.E.R.D.

if he does try and screw you you can go to small calims court and sew him for it i would tell him that to if he rips you off.he would have to come to where you live for court or get an attorney.he proble tells people all sorts of things like 3rd generation bloods and stuff so he can scam them.i think thats why he has his reps so cheap.

probably it only cost 130. but dosent small claims court cost money? i hope that he sends me what i asked for,and it be cb because i heard imports are unbearibly aggressive. maybe i should just buy one from somewhere else if i dont get her by tuesday what do you think? do you think that he will screw me over? maybe i should just cut my loses. i dont know

when is he going to send the blood.if i were you i would tell him never mind and tell him to give your money back and go buy from some one else.yes small claims does cost some money not much i dont think but most likely you will get something out of him.as far as ripping you off im not sure people have been getting what they want but some have been getting ripped off so you got a 50/50 shot.i looked on kingsnake and saw a few bloods for 125 shipped you just have to look around and you can find some nice deals.but most likely it will proble be atleast 150 but its worth the money for a nice healthy cbb instead of a wc.have you tried reptibid they have a few on there right i think one for 175 shipped at 21/2ft and a 3ft for 220 shipped dont quote me on this i think thats what they were wonting for them.hope you get what you want from ray if you choose to use him or what ever happends.good luck.

I personally do not fancy reptibid myself, I prefer sites where people have to pay to at least post ads..the times I have dealt on reptibid have gone badly, and you can just see scams such as pictures taken off of someone elseís ads/sites and such.
