If temperatures at the carrier hubs located in Indianapolis, IN or Memphis, TN or the destination zip code are under (Overnight Low) 32°F or over 90°F we will not ship as it is not safe for the animals. We will ship on the next available shipping day that temperatures allow.

Note: We will only ship animals using the hold for pickup option during checkout if temperatures fall under or over the afore mentioned range. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND choosing this option at checkout to avoid any shipping delays due to temperatures.

Note: Our carriers do not require a signature to leave the package. XYZReptiles is not responsible for any package once it has been tendered to the carrier. If you are not going to be available to receive the package, we recommend adding a specific date to the order notes to receive it or choose the hold for pickup option.
