Mail Ordering Herps

Post by RoMa » Sun, 01 Dec 1996 04:00:00



I would like to get some more lizards to add to my collection.
I want to get a Gold/Orange phase bearded dragon. I am also interested
in a blue tongued skink.  But I have trepidations in getting
them through mail order and cannot find any in my local area.

Has anyone had experience with mail ordering herps?  If so let
me know.

Thanks,

Mike B.

I have mail ordered many animals.  I have never had a problem, although
problems do occur.  Most shippers guarantee live delivery.  If you are
nervous about it, make sure you use a shipper who does guarantee live
delivery.  Also, I have had very good luck with Delta Dash (although,
again, others have had problems).  I think it is worth the extra $20 or
so, especially at this time of year, to get same day delivery.

Mail order works for many folks.  Just make sure the person you order
from guarantees live delivery and has a good reputation.  Ask around and
if you need to pay the extra for the good reputation.  It always works
out the best.
