It is our goal to ship out all orders as soon as possible and for products that are in stock, we can usually ship the same day. For our enclosures and complete reptile kits, which are made to order, we have listed approximate ship times on each product page.
Due to the transportation costs, at this time we are just shipping throughout the USA and Canada. As we have such a large variation of dimensions it is very difficult to accurately quote pricing outside the contiguous United States (lower 48 states) and therefore you will see a Shipping Estimate of $85. We will contact you with final shipping rates and will let you know of any pricing difference prior to your order being shipped.

Yes you can however, all of our enclosures are designed for more advanced heating methods as in an Arcadia Deep Heat Projector. This method provides a far superior heat source than under tank heaters, ceramic heat emitters, heat tape and radiant heat panels that only provide a minimal level of energy that can actually be used by reptiles.
It is for this reason that we encourage our customers to move away from this old technology and towards the safer, more effective overhead heating that will actually benefit your pet reptiles health and wellbeing in the heating process.
No. We are pro breeder (no breeders = no pets = no industry) but have absolutely zero interest in this small segment of the reptile business. Reptile breeders in the USA represent less than 1% (.75% to be exact) of all reptile keepers and the industrialized care in this commercial setting has very little to do with the other 99.75% of reptile keepers that today, are striving towards better long term care of their beloved pets. This is why we have chosen to focus our business model towards better reptile care and advancing reptile keeping and not on the over saturated reptile breeding side.
