Live Arrival Guarantee

Below are details regarding our ironclad live arrival and extended seven-day guarantee for all reptile, orders. Please know that DOA (Dead On Arrival) animals are extraordinarily rare, even during the extreme temperature swings of Summer and Winter.

Our animals arrive at DOA less than 1.4% of the time which is an incredible statistic and attributable not only to the health and strength of our animals but also to our exceptional box-packing abilities. Most companies will not guarantee the live arrival of toads, but we do! takes great pride in guaranteeing live arrival for each and every live reptile, order that we ship, in addition to a seven-day extended guarantee, giving you a full week of coverage. Below we will review our guarantee in detail, including nullification factors.

DOA animals are extremely rare (fewer than 1.4% of our animals arrive DOA), but if it does occur you need to be familiar with our policy (this is why, at checkout, you must acknowledge having read this page in its entirety). This provides us with your digital signature. Ignoring the terms of the guarantee is not an excuse, and will not render these rules void.

If you do receive a DOA reptile, please e-mail us a clear picture of the animal(s) placed on top of the shipping label, upside down, all in one snapshot. Each animal being claimed must be visible in the photograph. Additional photographs may be requested for further verification. E-mail both pictures to the address in the site header within eight hours of arrival.

The Live Arrival Guarantee applies to animals that arrive deceased, as well as animals that perish within seven days of arrival. Please follow the same procedure for both instances (picture of animal on top of shipping label, all in the same picture) to open a claim. A claim will not be opened without a picture.

Upon approval of your claim, you have a couple of options.

The first option is having us ship you a replacement animal, although heavily discounted shipping costs ($44.99) will be the responsibility of the customer. If the replacement animal is DOA, we would then refund your purchase price (excluding the shipping costs) via Bitcoin, Cash App, or Zelle depending on your method of payment. Keep in mind, we are extremely reasonable people, so we’ll work with you. Every situation is different.

The second option in the case of a DOA animal is an immediate refund, less the shipping cost ($49.99).
