Shipping Policies and Guarantees
All live animal shipments are currently shipped using Fedex. We can and do ship certain animals with other carriers, but prefer Fedex.
Live Animal Shipment quotes are made on an individual basis. LIVE ANIMAL SHIPPMENTS CAN VARY FROM $40.00- $125.00 depending on the box size and location.
The website will automatcally charge you $50.00 for live animal shippments. After your order is processed we will call you to confirm the final shipping charge. Once the remainer (if any) is paid we will ship out your animals.
There are very few occasions where we will return some money if the live animal shippments are less then the $50.00 charge, but this is a rare occurance.
HEAVIER ANIMALS AND LARGE PURCHASES DO REQUIRE LARGER BOXES, MORE MATERIAL, AND TEND TO HAVE HIGHER SHIPPING FEES.
You can add extra heat pads or ice packs if you'd like. Be sure to call our main facility to confirm or be sure to specify that in the order notes.

Items like tanks, enclosures, breeding racks, Waterland Tubs and complete kits have higher shipping rates that are not calculated by the system. These shipping quotes must be given on a case by case basis. These rates are calculated by using current rates set by the shipping companies.
Once and order is placed for a "Heavy Goods" item, then we will call you directly to confirm the final shipping price and close out the remaining payment.
Orders that have a high number of items will often times require the item to be shipped in more then one box. When multiple boxes are needed to ship an item, the remaining balance will be calculated here in the shipping facility and you will be contacted directly to confirm the final shipping price and to close out the remaining payment.
