  • No animal will be shipped if the weather here, at the central HUB or the destination is below 45 degrees or above 95 degrees. It is too risky for the safety of the animal.

Live Arrival Guarantee Insurance Available 

We offer LAG insurance at additional cost of $2.60 per $100 value.  Insurance will pay the amount you pay to insure your animal for if it arrives late and is DOA (Dead on Arrival).  We do not cover the cost of the insured amount if the animal arrives on time and is DOA.  All animals will be properly packaged and shipped to assure live arrival.  We cover up to 3,000 plus shipping. We will pay the claim if the animal arrives late, is DOA and it is a FedEx Approved Service Failure.  FedEx approved service delays are delays due to volume, missorts, mechanical failures and lost packages.  Our insurance policy does not cover DOAs if shipment is delayed by FedEx National Service Disruption.  Package must be accepted on first delivery attempt and a claim must be filed within 1 hour of receipt, and digital photographic proof must be provided of deceased animal.  Animal must be kept frozen and available for up to 120 days and made available upon request.  No live arrival guarantee exists without the purchasing of this LAG Insurance-No exceptions

A 25% non-refundable deposit is required to hold any reptile(s). Full payment is expected within two weeks of initial deposit for purchases under $500 unless other arrangements are made. Balances of $500 or more are required to be paid within 30 days of purchase agreement. Additional time can be arranged on a case by case basis.

General Notes of Shipping Receipt:

  • Your boa may arrive cool to the touch, this is okay; it is much safer to ship a boa in such a manner it arrives cooler rather than warmer as warming up a cold-blooded animal is infinitely easier than cooling one down.
  • Please allow your animal an hour or more to warm up at room temperature upon receipt before placing them in their new enclosure.
  • Please give your boa time to settle in from its trip and do not attempt to feed prior to it spending at least a week within your care; if you feed your boa before allowing it at least a week to acclimate and it regurgitates, our health guarantees are null and void.
  • Please do not excessively handle your boa for at least a period of one week for the same reasons. Also, excessively handling can unintentionally create a defensive animal if it is not given enough time to accept its new environment.
