Guarantee & Returns

We guarantee live arrival of your animals and plants if it’s between 40°F and 85°F in your area.


Live Arrival Guarantee

We guarantee live arrival of your animals and plants if the daytime temperature in your area is between 40°F and 85°F. Check your forecast for the next 7 days and ensure that it’s safe for your animals/plants before ordering. You are responsible for checking your forecast.

Consider buying the kits with a certificate if the forecast is not suitable for live animals/plants just yet. You can easily redeem the certificate(s) later.

The live arrival guarantee covers:

  • Carnivorous Plants
  • Harvester Ants
  • Hermit Crabs
  • Leopard Frog Tadpoles
  • Painted Lady Caterpillars
  • Redworms

For painted lady caterpillars, we also guarantee that 3 out of every 5 caterpillars will turn into happy, adult butterflies.

Since there are many factors at play for other animals and plants after they arrive, we cannot extend the guarantee beyond live arrival for them.
