Live arrival guarantee applies ONLY to shipments that are accepted on the FIRST delivery attempt. If no one is available to receive shipment at specified address given on the FIRST delivery attempt, and package is not handed directly to the customer (or agent of customer) by express customer request or via signature waivers with the carrier (packages left on porch/doorstep), the live arrival guarantee is VOID, NO EXCEPTIONS !
Live arrival guaranteed if shipment is to be picked up by customer (or requested agent of customer) at a STAFFED FedEx location and the package is picked up within five ( 5 ) hours of it's arrival to the FedEx location. ALL guarantees are VOID if package is not picked up the same day of it's arrival to the FedEx location.
If there is a problem with the snake(s) at arrival/pick up, you must contact me by email within 2 hours of obtaining the package.
If by some odd chance there is a DOA (dead on arrival)....clear visible proof pictures of said DOA are required to be submitted to me by way of email before action is taken to correct the incident.
If a problem arises with the snake(s) purchased, you must contact me by email within the specified time limit......( 14 days ).
I check my emails daily, so this would be the most beneficial means of contacting me.
The customer will be responsible for any and ALL shipping charges to have the snake(s) shipped back to me and to have your snake(s) REPLACED.
ALL shipping charges are NON-REFUNDABLE.
There will be NO CASH REFUNDS given. If I can not replace your snake due to it's EXACT type (species/morph/gender) being out of stock, you will be given a credit towards choosing another type of snake(s) of the same gender at equal value of your original purchase price, excluding shipping cost.
Absolutely NO animals are subject to replacement due to dispositions. Although most captive hatched snakes are very docile, we can not control their temperaments.

I also accept payments made via Paypal.
Please be sure to contact me with your interests BEFORE making a paypal payment as shipping charges differ from location to location.
NOTE: Any paypal payments made without contacting me first and giving you an exact shipping charge will simply be refunded.
Sorry, but I do NOT offer payment plans.
I have tried this in the past and it did not work out so well as I found ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN,
so I decided the best way to avoid unforeseen problems is to no longer do payment plans.

I do NOT hold snakes awaiting payment however, I do not mind holding snakes (within a REASONABLE time period...TWO WEEKS MAX), awaiting a shipping date
with payment (including shipping cost) made IN FULL.
International purchases made awaiting shipment to the Hamm, Germany Show will be allowed a longer hold time.

I will sometimes consider trades if you have something I am interested in. In the event you have a trade offer for me and I accept, I DO NOT ship first.
You will be required to ship to me at your cost and I will ship to you at my cost, unless we come to another agreement.
