Shipping

We ship Monday - Friday! Our warehouse is closed on Saturday and Sunday. Place your order by 11:00 CST, and it will go out the next day. Whether you live on the east coast or west coast or anywhere in between, we ship from central US so you will always get your order quickly! As always, shipping is only $7.95 regardless of your location! Have you wondered why we no longer offer free shipping? The simple answer is to save you money. Companies that offer free shipping have added their shipping cost to the price of their product. Consequently, the more you buy, the more of a shipping cost you're paying. We offer a flat rate shipping cost of $7.95, no matter what you buy! If the shipping costs more, we pay the extra for you!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are experiencing extreme weather, we highly suggest asking your local post office to hold your mail. In extreme weather even 15 minutes on a porch or in a mailbox can cause your insects to perish. The delivery trucks are also not temperature controlled, so it is generally a better option to have them sit at your local post office. We will continue to send out reshipments if they are marked for pick up at the post office and keep arriving dead. If a customer chooses to have their reshipment sent to their home, we will only do this ONCE.

  • We ship Monday-Friday although our shipping days may change without notice.
  • Processing typically takes 1-2 business days. We are closed on weekends and evenings. 
  • Orders placed after 11am CST on Friday will ship the following week.
  • Delivery time is NOT guaranteed by USPS but generally takes 2-3 business days.
  • Delivery time is also NOT guaranteed by UPS but generally takes 3 business days. 

Enclosures

Enclosure pre-orders tend to take 2-4 weeks to process.

In-stock enclosures tend to take 2-4 days to process plus an estimated 3 business days for delivery.

All of the above is subject to change.

The discount code "NEWCUSTOMER" and other regular coupons cannot be applied to enclosures. This exclusion is due to the already competitive pricing of these items and the standard flat rate shipping charge of $7.95, which remains consistent regardless of their weight or size.

We require images for any and all enclosure parts that need to be replaced.

Returns

Our return policy is subject to our discretion and we have the right to refuse a return at any time. We do not accept exchanges. To be eligible for a return, items must remain unopened, with the original packaging intact. Opening the item, including cutting the box or removing the tape, will be considered as the item being opened and therefore ineligible for return. Returns must be received back within 30 days of the purchase date to be eligible for a refund.

We DO NOT accept returns for breakable items such as bulbs, lighting, heating, reptile hides/caves, cork flats/rounds, etc. 

It is the customer's responsibility to ensure the correct sizing of items before purchase, as we cannot be held responsible for incorrect sized items ordered. This includes reptile habitats/enclosures, hides/caves, plants, etc!

We DO NOT accept Glass Doors back. Please be sure you are ordering the correct doors based on the enclosure you have, if you are unsure, please reach out to Customer Service.

In the event that we do accept a return, a restocking fee will be charged. This fee is equivalent to the amount incurred for shipping the item to the customer and back to our facility. We only charge a flat rate shipping of $7.95 for USPS or $14.95 for UPS when placing an order, but upon initiating a return the actual shipping charges will be applied and are based on the size of the item, the weight and the distance it's going so can fluctuate. This will be considered the restocking fee. Enclosures will have a flat rate restocking fee of $60 except for the 5x2x2 and 4x2x4 sized enclosures which will have a $100 restocking fee. 

We DO NOT accept returns on live items, perishables such as Pangea, Dubia Dew/Water Crystals or Dubia Diet/Roach Chow.

If an item is refused upon delivery, a restocking fee will also be assessed.
