Species for sale - 2020

   

   

       

 

             Important - Please read:

 

  •     Due to demand we are now willing to accept small orders. However, for any orders with a value below £100 the customer will need to pay the full cost of postage.

            For orders over £100 the cost of postage will be subsidized and you will only be charged

        approximately 50% of the postal cost.  

       

  •     Please ensure you read our 'terms and conditions' prior to placing any orders. If you place an order it is on the understanding that you are accepting our terms as stated.

 

  •     Please email us prior to placing an order - to discuss the method of payment and an agreeable posting date etc.

 

  •     Due to the widespread operation of 'scammers' resulting in the high risk of reclaimed payments, all new customers will now be asked to pay by a bank to bank transfer or via PayPal ‘Friends and Family’. If you are not willing to send payment this way please do not place an order - if you do  

        your payment will simply be refunded.

 

            We are now also offering a live arrival guarantee. (See our terms and conditions regard this.)

 

    Resumption of sales!

 

    After giving the post service an additional four weeks to smooth out their problems, we will start shipping parcels again from the 10th August.

 

    The Thai post is working well and packages are leaving the country very quick, however the follow on service in some countries still seems to be quite variable. Hence, we advise before placing an order to check with your local post company to find out if their service is operating well enough to ensure quick delivery. Parcels are sent by Thailand Posts ‘Express Mail Service’ - so simply ask them if you have a parcel being delivered from Thailand by EMS how long would it take to arrive?

 

    I have no control over what happens to the box after it is posted, and hence my terms regard late delivery / delay etc. Please note that colonies are posted at the customers risk, and there will be no refund / replacement for stock arriving dead due to a delayed delivery. If you are concerned about the possible time taken to deliver - we suggest you delay ordering for a few more weeks, until your local post company can show a faster service.

 

    Stock available
