I wish I didn't have to have terms and conditions, but for the very best experience, and to promote repeat and valued customers, here we go.....
I guarantee all snakes are healthy and feeding frozen/thawed mice at the time of sale unless otherwise noted. If a snake stops eating, there is always a reason. I am available to offer advice at any time during your snake ownership. I do not offer to pay for a veterinary health check, if you take your snake to a veterinarian, you do so entirely at your own expense.
The genetics of your new snake are guaranteed when the ad states 100% het for a gene. Possible hets are just that, possible and therefore, not guaranteed. I pop-sex hatchlings upon hatching or arrival. Male hatchlings are guaranteed male. Females are by default, or lack of visible hemipenes, female. There is always a margin of error, but my popping skills are top-notch.
I accept Paypal and Venmo for any purchase. With PayPal please use the friend or family option to send payment. All other options require a 3% increase on the total sale including shipping.
Payment plans are available for orders over $200.00. A nonrefundable deposit of 25% of the cost of the order is required. The order must be paid in full within 45 days unless other arrangements are made at the time of the initial purchase. Failure to pay in full in the time given will result in a refund of all payments besides the original 25% nonrefundable deposit and will result in ban from further purchases.
Shipping is a flat rate of $55 for a small box and $75 for any other box. I ship only to the US lower 48 states. Local pick up or meet up is welcome within 20 miles. Shipping is through FedEx priority next day air using Reptiles2you.com or Reptilesexpress.com. I ship Monday through Wednesday with most deliveries arriving by 10:30 a.m. Delivery delays due to a wrong address, or missing part of an address given, terminate the live arrival guarantee. You, or a representative must be available to receive the package upon delivery. Snakes that are left at the door or unattended also invalidate the live arrival guarantee. I won't ship when temperatures fall below 34ºF or over 88ºF. I prefer a hold for pick-up at your local FedEx facility and require that the snake be picked up within 4 hours of arrival. Please plan and make sure that the appropriate arrangements have been made on your end to keep shipped animals safe.
I will not be accountable for carrier delays or fault. You do have the option to purchase insurance at the time of purchase. The cost is 2.50 per 100.00, if you so choose please state so at the time of purchase.
Please unpack and carefully inspect your snake(s) upon arrival. Purchasing a snake from me implies that you have read the care and feeding page of this website and have provided the environment and handling recommendations called for in that section.
In the unlikely event an animal arrives deceased, you must notify me immediately and email a photo of the animal(s) or all guarantees are null and void. Deceased animal(s) must be kept for further instructions and verification. In the event that you receive a deceased snake, and meet the terms of this agreement, every attempt will be made to replace the snake with a similar snake or of equal value. For cash compensation, please refer to the shipping insurance referenced above.
The legality of owning a reptile in your city and state is your responsibility. It is not my responsibility to know what regulations exist in your area. You must confirm that you are able to legally have snakes in your apartment or house. I do not knowingly sell reptiles to persons below 18 years of age unless a parent provides consent. Purchasing a snake from me implies that you have complied with city and state laws, and received permission from landlords.
Under no circumstances would the failure to read and understand these terms, be reason to consider them altered or void. Please reach out with any questions or concern before you commit to purchase. I reserve the right to refuse sale to any buyer for any reason.
I do not offer to pay for veterinary expenses for any reason. If you take your snake to a veterinarian, you do so entirely at your own expense.
Breeding and keeping snakes is a passion for me. I consider every one of my snakes my pet and companion. When you purchase a snake from me you are getting a snake that has been treated well, handled often, and not from a large scale operation that only handles their snakes when they have to.
Thank you for considering SnakeCreations for your snake collection!
