All packages must be picked up on the day of delivery or our Live Arrival Guarantee will be rescinded. The maximum transit time we permit on reptile shipments is 2 days or 1 day when shipping amphibians.

Live Arrival Guarantee

We offer a 100% live arrival guarantee on all live animal shipping as long as a few steps are followed. All cargo packages must be received and within 3 hours of the plane landing and all RR packages must be picked up the same day they arrive from your nearest FedEx Hub. Should there be any losses, photo evidence is required within two hours of pickup. We do not offer reimbursement should a tail be lost in shipping. All Isopod shipments are covered under our Live Arrival Guarantee as well providing they are sent with one or two day shipping options. We are sorry to say that given past experiences, we do not guarantee live arrival of Flies. I must also mention that plant, isopod and springtail shipments sent to PO Boxes can only be shipped Canada Post. Any special circumstances will be discussed on a case by case basis.
