We are moving to Hawaii and snakes are not allowed there. We have had "Fuzzy" ('cause she's not) for about 17 years, and really want her to go to a good home. We're not concerned about getting a lot of $$, but want to be sure she goes to someone who will really want such a pet for the long run, not just as a fad right now. There's lots of online places specifically for selling reptiles and are a couple. Make sure when you list you have yourself covered as far as shipping because it's pricey.

Hudak is a wildlife educator and venomous snake expert. He says while many dealers are responsible, not enough is being done to keep snakes like these out of the wrong hands.
"To sell this [snake] off the street in five minutes seems irresponsible," said Guerrero.
"I think it's reckless," said Hudak.
While it's legal to sell deadly snakes in Pennsylvania, it's a crime to transport and possess them in New York and many other states without a permit. But that's exactly what some snake enthusiasts do and the results can be deadly.
One set of Florida parents were recently found guilty of manslaughter after their starving pet python got loose and strangled their little girl. They quickly called 911, but it was too late.
