We work hard to keep our website updated with available reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates. However, there are times when we receive multiple orders for the same animal, or our website simply doesn’t update quickly enough. In any case, we will notify you if we are unable to fulfill your order.

We offer a live arrival guarantee for all orders of live reptiles we ship. If you receive a DOA (dead on arrival) reptile, you must take a picture and send it to us within 24 hours of arrival. Upon approval of your claim, we offer the option of a replacement animal or a refund.
