Terms & Conditions
Please note that your failure
to read our terms whether accidental or intentional
will not in under any circumstances be a reason to consider them void or altered.
CONDITIONAL LIVE ARRIVAL GUARANTEE **: All
animals are conditionally guaranteed to arrive alive and healthy
for a period of 7 days provided that all the following conditions
- Low temperatures must be 40 degrees or above and
high temperatures must be
below 90 degrees Fahrenheit. These temperatures conditions must be
met at both the facility where the reptile or amphibian ships as well as
the destination location.
- The reptile or amphibian must be recieved by the customer
or by someone designated as the receiver. Parcels that must be left at the
doorstep by the shipping service because the customer is not home will null
and void our guarantee on live arrival. This is especially important when
the weather at the delivery location is below frezzing or above 90 degrees
- You must provide ReptilesNCritters.com with a valid address*.
Failure to include such important details as an apartment or suite number,
numerical street address or an incorrect zip code may result in the animal
not being delivered, or worse, being delivered to the wrong house or apartment.
If the animal returns to us unharmed we will reship it only when we have
received a personal confirmation of the validity of your address. However,
in this situation we really cannot be expected to pay for shipping again
if you gave us an incorrect address. Additional shipping charges will be
assessed and must be paid in advance before we ship the animal back to you.
In the worst case scenario, when as a result of your giving us an incorrect
address and the animal returns to us dead, no refund will be extended to
you, and will have to purchase a new animal.
* No P.O. Box's allowed. P.O. Box's only work if your using the postal
service. The major private shipping companies, FedEx, UPS, and FedEx, cannot
deliver to a P.O. box. If you purchase an animal from us and provide only
a P.O. box then your tying our hands together so to speak. We will make every
attempt to contact you via email or telephone but if we receive no communication
from you within 30 business days we will have to choice but to issue an automatic
Failure to meet any one of these requirements will void the guarantee of any
CREDITS AND REFUNDS: Three criteria must meet before

our guarantee as stated above. If you fail to meet any one of those three
conditions no claim will be considered.

order within 12 hours from the time the animal arrived at
your home. Please email us through our website contact form on our website

of the problem your are reporting. If you do not report
the exact problem to us within 12 hours no claim will be considered.
3. PROOF OF DEATH OR INJURY: The problem animals (alive or dead)
must be photographed with a camera after which you can either email us the
images at email@example.com or mail the prints to our business
address. Photos should taken in good lighting conditions. You may take as many
pictures from as many different angles as you wish. Additionally, we also require photograph of the address label on the box your animals came in. This is needed to establish beyond any doubt that you are one of our customers. Please take a picture of the dead animal on top off, or right next to, the address label of the box. If your sending us digital
images please to not exceed 1.5 megabytes per image. This is how your
claim will be verified. If you are unwilling or unable to photograph
the animals (alive or dead) then no claim will be considered.
4. GETTING THE REFUND: Once we have determined that you have a valid
claim we will process your refund through PayPal. Once we issue the refund, your credit card should be credited
within 3 - 5 business days. If you do not want a refund then we will issue
you a store credit. Store credit to be used on your next order will be offered
at our discretion.
PLEASE NOTE: Shipping charges are NON-REFUNDABLE. Refunds only
apply to D.O.A. reptiles or amphibians.
RESHIPMENT OF ANIMAL POLICY: To receive a replacement
animal you must meet the following requirements:

PROOF OF DEATH OR INJURY POLICY.
*Point number 3 may be waived if the customer does not have camera or way of sending us a photo of the dead animal. This will be handled on a case by case
After we have determined that you have met ALL of the criterion
of the policies as outlined on this page we will make a new attempt
a new animal to
you. We will cover the entire cost of the replacement animal but the cost
of shipping a replacement animal must be paid for by the customer. Shipping
charges for an unlimited number of animals per order is $44.95. The cost of shipping must be paid
in advance by the customer to be collected over the phone or via a PayPal money
request sent to your email address. If you decide that you do not wish to receive
a new animal we will issue a partial refund that covers the cost of the animal
minus the shipping and handling charge. We cannot refund or credit shipping.
NOTE: In the event that the replacement animal dies during shipping we will NOT make
a third attempt at delivery but will simply cut our loses by issuing a refund
for the amount of the animal(s) minus the original shipping charge.
Cancellation of Orders: You may cancel your order at anytime prior to
shipping and receive a full refund of your payment. Orders that have
already been shipped and then canceled will be assessed shipping charges both
ways and a 20% restocking fee. After these charges have been deducted
the remainder or your payment will be refunded provided the animal returns
to us alive and unharmed. Please note that for any reason, your refusal
to accept an order that has been shipped will be considered as cancellation
of the order and all the previously mentioned charges will be applied. We
reserve the right to refuse to take your order or cancel it at any time without
Legal Requirements: ReptilesNCritters.com, (includes all staff, business
partners, or affiliates) will not knowingly ship any animals in violation of
state or federal laws. If we advise you that an animal is illegal in
your state and you believe that we are incorrect all you need to do is provide
us with verifiable proof that the activity is legal in your state or municipality.
(Almost all major cities ban the ownership of anything that is considered poisonous
for example) The following will be considered as verifiable proof: A
letter from the appropriate agency that regulates the activity stating that
it is legal. Reference to the "official" web site of the appropriate
regulating agency where it clearly shows the animal is legal to own. A
copy of a permit or letter of authorization from the regulating agency showing
that you are allowed to possess the regulated or banned animals.
