Live Guarantee and Terms
Your purchase of live animals is guaranteed to arrive alive. There are a number of situations under which we do not offer a live guarantee. Orders arriving dead (DOA) are rare and when they do happen, it's almost always because of high temperature at the destination. Please be aware of our terms regarding heat (below). You'll be fine- as long as someone will be home upon delivery. The shipment cannot sit outside in the sun or heat where it is exposed to the elements or in a hot metal mailbox. Even in mild temperatures, direct sun will kill
