Our shipping costs include not only the cost charged by FEDEX but also the cost of specialized insulated shipping containers. The amount that we charge our customers for shipping is determined from the size and quantity of live animals purchased and by the destination of the shipment. In all cases these charges are well below retail FEDEX rates. We categorize shipping containers into one of four sizes: Standard; Standard Plus; Oversized; and Oversized Plus.
We classify each animal that we sell into one of three shipping classes.: small; medium; or large. For example, all hatchlings are classified as small, most juveniles are classified as medium and most adults are classified as large.
