called to place a order & was told by chrstal that they were not shipping because of the holidays. The order was for painted turtles for $19.95. Called back on Dec 30 & the price jumped to $29.95. Checked the next day & the price jumped again to $34.95. 1 day later. I understand sales but there was NO expiration date. I ordered lots in the past including turtles, but it's now a ripoff.
