Do you have a Live Arrival Guarantee for LIVE ANIMALS?

Live reptile and amphibian orders are covered under a Live Arrival Guarantee as long as they are signed for upon delivery and not left unattended for any period of time. We absolutely guarantee that all reptiles, amphibians, tarantulas and scorpions we sell are voluntarily feeding before shipping. We further guarantee that all reptiles and amphibians will be absolutely healthy upon arrival. Reptiles come with a 3 day health guarantee after arrival. Amphibians, Tarantulas and Scorpions are a live arrival only guarantee.

Any guarantees are void if you do not house the reptile, amphibian, tarantula or scorpion in a proper environment (ie. Keeping a Bearded Dragon in a Tupperware container is not acceptable). This includes housing the animal or amphibian without proper heating, lighting, bedding and accessories.

Can I see a picture of the LIVE ANIMAL I am buying?

Pictures shown on our website are a representation of the animal you will receive. As these are live animals there will be aesthetic variations. We do not offer individual pictures of animals less than $350. We only sell grade A super high quality.

Can my LIVE ANIMAL be sexed?

Yes, for animals that can be sexed we offer that option right on the sales page. Please note some animals, such as tarantulas and scorpions, cannot be sexed.

When will a product or animal be back in stock?

Send an email or simply text us and let us know what you're looking for. We'll contact you when the item or animal is back in stock.

Do you have a Live Arrival Guarantee for LIVE FEEDERS?

For live feeders we guarantee live arrival when you receive the shipment directly from the shipper and do not allow the shipment to stay outdoors (ie. on your porch); you accept each order (you cannot always determine their condition by outside appearance); and you understand that live feeders go into hibernation at below 55 degrees and you allow cold weather shipments three hours to warm up at room temperature before passing judgement on their condition.
