Due to our high temps last week we had to reschedule previous shipping requests to this week, so there are only a limited number of spots available for small orders of less than 5 geckos that do not have any add on geckos or wholesale lots.
*** Please remember that if you purchased wholesale geckos on our most recent sale (9/13 or after), it said that they would be available to ship in 2 weeks (October 1st or after). Please do not schedule a ship date before then. ***
Monday Sept. 24th - Only orders less than 5 auction or retail geckos (no add ons or wholesale lots).
Tuesday Sept. 25th - Only orders less than 5 auction or retail geckos (no add ons or wholesale lots).
Wednesday Sept. 26th - Only orders less than 5 auction or retail geckos (no add ons or wholesale lots).
As always, the forecast can change quickly. If temps become unsafe we may have to postpone and you would be notified via email.

You may submit a shipping request but if the temp is unsafe on that day, your package will not be shipped. If we cannot safely ship your package you will be notified via email.
If you need to change the date or ship to address, please email email@example.com and ask to have your submission deleted and submit your new request at your convenience. If you do not notify us to cancel your first submission, your package may ship on whatever day you had submitted first.
We only ship packages containing animals via FedEx Next Day Priority shipping. Delivery is usually made by 10:30 AM but some more remote areas can be late afternoon/early evening. Please call FedEx (1-800-463-3339) to confirm Next Day Priority delivery times for your location.
Please note that FedEx may leave your package on the porch. They may not ring your bell or knock on your door. You must monitor the delivery with the tracking information that is sent to you.
*** Someone must be there to accept the package as required by our live arrival and health guarantee. There are no guarantees if you are not there to receive the package. ***
Please remember that we cannot ship a package based on the hourly temperature for the morning that it is expected to arrive at your location. We must plan for the high and low of the entire day in the event that the package gets delayed. The temperature may be safe that morning but if the package gets delayed and is stuck in a cargo hold, on a truck or in a warehouse that is not climate controlled, it could end very badly for our friends in the box. We package and ship with the animals best interest in mind.
Cold packs are used in all temps over 80F for geckos (or over 76 for baby geckos). We will use heat packs for snakes as needed based on our experience.
Please see the "Safe Shipping Temperature Guidelines" section below for more details.
***** Something to be aware of is that if it is much cooler in our area and warmer in your area, we may have to wait for a day when the temps are closer together because we will not be able to use a cold pack without possibly harming the geckos. Also, Crested Geckos are very sensitive to heat and we will typically only be able to use a heat pack in very large shipping boxes such as the ones we use for wholesale orders. Heat can be a much greater threat to the health of the gecko than the cold when we are able to ship following our safe shipping guidelines. *****
***** Please do not try to warm up any animal with artificial means if they are cold when they arrive. Let them come up to room temperature naturally. You could harm or kill your them by trying to warm it up too fast. This would also void the health guarantee. *****
