A California man narrated how some thieves stole his bag in San Jose on October 5 only to find four snakes and a lizard inside. The bag was owned by Brian Gundy, a man native of Campbell who sells reptiles through his business ‘For Goodness Snakes’. Gundy posted a video on YouTube explaining the situation and asked people to inform him in case they get any lead. He was giving a reptile presentation at Martin Luther King Library in San Jose when his duffel bag full of snakes got stolen.
“Today I have some bad news for you and I need your help,” said Gundy. “Yesterday I did a reptile presentation at Martin Luther King Library in San Jose and make a long story short, four snakes and one blue tongue skink were stolen from me,” he added.
Gundy acknowledged that there was ‘quite a bit of money’ involved in it but more importantly he was worried about the safety and wellbeing of those reptiles.
“Obviously these people, took this bag from me that was filled with these animals, probably doesn't know the first thing about taking care of snakes and lizards and so my biggest concern is the wellbeing and safety of the animals,” said Gundy. He requested people to give him a call if they hear about anyone trying to dump or sell some animals. Guindy also gave the phone number and e-mail ID where he can be reached.
Gundy, who created ‘For Goodness Snakes’ in 1995, gave a detailed description of the stolen reptiles on his YouTube account. According to Gundy, one of the snakes was a male blue-eyed lucy with a combination of blue and red while another one was a female gold blush mochi that weighs around 600 grams. He said that the female pied weighs about 1200 grams and is about 70% white and the male caramel albino Burmese python is about three feet long. “The blue-tongued skink is 28 1/2 inches long (the largest blue-tongued skink in the US),” he wrote. Reportedly, Gundy has been able to retrieve two of the snakes so far.
