reptile shopping

When shopping for reptiles for sale online there are a number of advantages that you can look forward to and here is a brief list of what you need to know. The Advantages Of An Online Purchase are measured in the end result and that is having found a healthy and happy reptile pet at great savings and ease.

Where To Find Reptiles For Sale Online

Unlike most daily items that can be found for sale on the major sites like Ebay and Amazon, Reptiles for sale are found on a specific number of niche sites that are normally web outlets for existing mom and pop reptile stores. While these sites are a good place to start looking for your reptile pet, they are no more than an online version of what these small stores have for sale on a daily basis. The secret to finding a great variety of quality reptiles for sale online is to find the sites that are made specifically for the purpose of getting a large variety of reptiles to the public in a safe and affordable manner. This seems like an easy task but the secret is knowing who is really selling you your next pet.

What Is Drop Shipping

Drop shipping is the practice of passing a sale made from one site to a large warehouse somewhere else at an offsite location where the order you placed is fulfilled and dropped off at your destination. While this practice is commonplace in the world of clothing, electronics and most other daily used goods, drop shipping in reptiles is a growing new trend. The unfortunate result of this practice is that often the pet you were expecting has not been handled, cared for or even seen by the entity you are purchasing it from and that may result in you receiving a very different creature than the one you were expecting.

What Are Reptile Care Sheets

Care sheets are one-page online instructions about how to care for a specific type of reptile and answers to commonly asked questions. While care sheets are an essential part of starting your research into the needs of the animal you are about to acquire they should never take the place of speaking to someone in person who has had experience in reptile care and who is willing to share that experience with you. While most care sheets are cookie cutter versions of what’s found in the top three google search results about your specific reptile pet, there are a few that are carefully written and fully detailed with tons of facts, suggestions and solutions. The trick is to find the right one and once again experience beats looks when it comes to caring for exotic animals.

When you are ready to purchase a reptile online the first thing you should do is research the animal you think you want to care for. The second thing you should do is research the online site that you are purchasing your animal from.
