To ship an animal Reptile Express sends me a packing kit, I pack the animal and Reptile Express sends someone to pick it up from me. The box arrives at your door the next day (usually before noon).

If you are interested in having a ME reptile shipped straight to your door just let me know your postal code and I will send you a quote.

Reptiles are shipped Monday-Wednesday only. This means they should arrive Tuesday-Thursday. This gives us an extra day of the business week just in case the shipment is delayed.

If anything should go wrong with shipping, ME will cover the cost to make it right. The safety of the animal is my top concern.

Shipping outside of Canada is offered infrequently, and the price is usually too high to be worth it. However if you really want an ME babies, send us an email at and we can see if it’s possible.
