they have very poor customer service and the guy is a straight out jerk. they do not answer phones or emails. *I* had to contact them about shipping info (they didnt even bother telling me they shipped them!) i got buy one get one free cornsnakes and paid 24.95 for shipping. The do not over night the animals, its two day shipping that costs them UNDER 24.95. my box said it only cost them 5.50 to ship...the box had no holes and they were in plain plastic deli cups. they stuffed the box with a publix sales paper so they were tossed around pretty good. they were also too cheap to put a heat pack in it. The male snake is traumatized and the female had some type of pus like protrusion. I sent a pic of her to the guy and he was rude saying i see the spot that has nothing to do with the snakes health. we shipped over 70 corn snakes and youre the only one to experience a problem which i kinda expected. (he was referring to me contacting him multiple times to "bother him" about shipping info) if you care about animals at all you wont make the mistake of ordering from them. these people are only into the money and refuse responsibility for any and everything. His business says its in texas but snakes actually came from florida and he has a criminal record!
to his response:I love how reptile nation said something completely different to us about your company. Stating all they see is bad reviews everywhere for your company and they're looking into it. So is the BBB we reported it to them as well. Anyone that's interested I'll show you the proof gladly. I'm looking out for the animals because I give a crap. The sick ones you sold me.. Its ridiculous what would they do if I sent them back?? Probably thrown them away. It IS a sad world we live in where people use animals for money without giving them so much as correct living conditions. They also stated "a minor on a PayPal account brought the snakes" my daughter is 20 almost 21 a legal adult in the state of Florida. He's trying to talk his way out of it. Firstly PayPal doesn't let minors create accounts if I remember correctly and two aren't"professionals" not supposed to sell to minors? Just read EVERYONES reviews people, they speak for themselves :) the ones on their site, likely fake. Its wouldn't be the first time someone's done that. Poor animals..
another update.. my poor snake has died today.. this is a garbage company ran by crappy people. they pretty much run a concentration camp for animals. the ones that dont arrive dead, you fall in love with and slowly watch them die in your hands... i finally got a refund after showing the dead snake.. and even then the jerk acted like i was still in the wrong. saying i need to go erase my bad reviews..why should i? its not my fault they treat animals like garbage. i want EVERYONE to know how terrible these people are.. do NOT let those people bully you if you get involved with them. I got a lawyer to help me.
I Had been looking around for a scale less head ball python. I called reptile city an a man answered the phone. He seemed very agitated when he answered. I had asked him if they had any scale less head ball pythons. He was very rude and said no. He then ended up hanging up on me. Whatever you do, do not trust these people. My cousins salamanders were dead when they arrived at his house. Please listen to me DO NOT ORDER FROM REPTILE CITY YOU WILL GET RIPPED OFF AND TREATED LIKE GARBAGE.
I Ordered Three times from this company. First a male basilisk he had MBD THIN and VERY dehydrated when he arrived I was able to nurse him back to health. Then I ordered two tokays and a female basilisk. One Tokay came VERY dead so dead it was already decomposing. The other was VERY thin and dehydrated. Then the basilisk came with MBD and only a LITTLE hatch-ling when I CLEARLY asked for a larger guaranteed female. Then after only having her three days she died. Then when I asked for my money back he DID refund but left this message to me in response. "We do not want your business either - Find another reptile company to ___ over" Isn't that just GREAT customer service. I WILL NEVER use them again. This place sucks and Felton Willis is VERY RUDE!!!! WOW NEVER do buisness with this company EVER!!!!
I ordered tortoises from this place, its been a week to and still havent sent them .You can never get ahold of them weather your calling or emailing no responce from them at all. so today after calling over and over i got them to pick up and the responce was verry rude. They claim that tonight they are being sent and will be here in the morning. they also claim to have sent me shipping information that i still have not receved, I can only hope they arive alive and on time. But i am expecting the worst.
They gave me a date that my turtles would ship, and then shipped them 2 days later. Then, instead of shipping them express mail as they promissed, shipped them Priority US Mail, charging me $24.95 and only paying $6.95 for shipping. When I finally got the box, it was unmarked, the only padding was newspaper and the turtles were in a round clear plastic deli container with holes poked in it and a damp kleenex for moisture. The turtles were still alive but appeared dazed and dehydrated. It was 80 degrees that day. I waited all day long for them to arrive because I was worried they would be left in the heat. The mail carrier apparently "forgot" they were in her van and had to come back in her own vehicle after 5 and drop them off. I was having a nervous breakdown that they were going to die because of the heat. When I saw the packaging I was livid. More people need to know about this so that this company stops this cruelty to animals.
Purchased 2 Red Footed Tortoises at a great price. Shipping was FAST & FREE. Tortoises were very healthy. Company kept in touch regarding the arrival of my tortoises. Great customer service. I WILL shop here again.
I purchased a Mississippi Map Turtle from this company and they emailed me telling the turtle would be shipped out on the 7th as overnight, because shipping was 19.99 for overnight. I never received a tracking number so I emailed them back and they told me that they were shipping him on the 8th do to a delay. they finally sent me a tracking number and told me to call the. The guy I spoke with had a attitude because he said I emailed him too much. Which I sent 4 emails because I heard nothing back and go no tracking number, but he said he just shipped the turtle on the 8th and gave me the tracking. I went online to check and it said 2-3 day priority shipping. I called the post office and they told me the package takes 2-3 days to arrive because they sent it priority. I told him it was a live turtle and they said the shipping didn't state is was an animal because it is manditory that animals are expressed mailed overnight. They paid arou $6.00 to ship the turtle and he has been the box since the 7th at 11:50am. It is the 9th at :45pm and he still has not arrived. I hope he is still alive. I would never order from this company if I were you. Animal abuse. Someone should shut them down.
I would never recommend doing business with this site.
I was shopping around for a baby tortoise to add to my family and stumbled upon this website. The price they had listed seemed to be very nice, combine that with free shipping (reptiles normally are shipped for between 25 and 50 dollars!!) I was eager to buy from them. The only problem was all their baby tortoises were out of stock. I contacted by email and was told they would search for one. They found one a few days later, after I finally contacted to ask if they had found one yet because they had not contacted me back. I was thrilled and called right away. To my shock they had tacked on an extra 60 dollars to the price of the tortoise, bringing the price to 250 dollars for the single tortoise. I felt that I had to purchase the tortoise because of all the work I assumed they had done to track down a tortoise for me. I gave them the 250 dollars. I then did not hear from them for almost another week, delays and not being able to communicate with the breeder they said. I was furious. They eventually did email me and say that my tortoise was being shipped, but unbeknownst to me, they had him shipped 2nd day air, which meant he would be in the cold october weather for 2 days instead of just overnight. I paid SIXTY extra dollars and they STILL couldn't ship my tortoise overnight?!?! When he arrived he was very cold, not moving, on his back, I literally thought he was dead, they had not packed a heating pack in the box so he'd been at the mercy of the weather (this is a desert animal that needs temps in the 80's and 90's to live, the temps at night were in the low 40s!) He was also covered in his own poo because they had fed him apparently right before he left, and they had put a wet paper towel in the box with him, so he was cold, dirty and wet. Worst of all, this "baby" tortoise I was supposed to get, turned out to be a poor little one year old tortoise with a bad case of shell pyramidding and runny eyes. These are indications of very very bad care at his breeder's home. The wrong kind of food, the wrong kind of heat and light, the wrong everything! None of the supplies I bought were big enough for him, I expected a 1.5 to 2 inch BABY and got a 3.5 inch yearling! I will ALSO now have to replace 70 dollars worth of supplies.
In all, this place has cost me 250 for a tortoise, 75 for vet visits that still aren't over because of his condition, 70 for supplies and another 70 when I have to replace them again! so a "189 dollar" tortoise turns into a 465 dollar nightmare. Learn from my mistake, NEVER use this company.
