Read the Care Instructions if you are unfamiliar with the care of Leopard Geckos. Remember your Gecko has to get used to its new surroundings, and all Geckos need more of less time from individual to individual Gecko. Some are eating and fine in the first day, others take 2 months to start eating and pooping regularly. so be patient and keep records.


Shipping in the USA

Most Geckos are shipped Fed Ex overnight Priority delivery with a 10:30am delivery time on dayof delivery. In some cases due to location the delivery time may be later. Prior delivery time notification will be provided. Live delivery Guaranteed. We charge $60.00 per shipment up to 10 Geckos per shipment.

We do ship in approved insulated live animal shipping box's. In some cases due to weather we may include a heat/cold pack in the box.

Shipments are delivered to a local shipping hub in the afternoons to assure your animal spends the least amount of time in transit. Then the following day you will receive delivery. Note that if there is a delivery delay, you are responsible to contact the shipper using the Tracking number we will provide you before your shipment goes out.

International Orders 

At this time we don't provide international shipping service. However you may use an independent exporter that has the proper permits to ship Leopard Geckos internationally. All associated costs of shipping internationally will be born by the buyer and once we deliver your  order to the exporter live, we are then no longer responsible for the health of the Geckos. At some point in the future we do plan to have an exporter that we can recommend for your use.

Canadian Orders

Canadian orders are treated the same as international orders. There is one way to simplify this: If you live nearby the USA/Canadian border or have a friend who does, you could drive over the border and pick up your shipment in most any city in the USA. We will just ship you Geckos to a nearby Fed Ex/UPS drop point for your pick up.
