We do not directly ship reptiles outside of the United States.
That being the case, we do have a few options for those of you not living in the US.
We do not ship live animals directly into Canada, as the cost of doing so is prohibitive for all but the largest orders.
To keep transport costs reasonable, our Canadian gecko customers generally have their geckos shipped to a UPS location in the United States that is just on the other side of the Canadian border (Buffalo, NY, etc.) UPS will hold the package for you at the counter, and then you can simply pick them up and drive home. At the border you will be required to show an invoice, which we will include, that states all geckos are captive bred in the US. There are no special licenses or expensive permits necessary.
The only cost in doing this are the duties charged by Canadian customs officials. I'm not sure how much it is, but I've never had anyone complain of it being very expensive.
And no, your geckos aren't going to be seized.
It has been brought to my attention (about a dozen times now) that a certain Canadian gecko breeder is telling people that their animals may be seized when crossing the border. This breeder has even gone so far as to tell people they could go to prison! The truth is, this is a self-serving scare tactic, plain and simple. In fact, that particular breeder has taken HUNDREDS of my geckos over the border himself...sometimes taking back 50-100 geckos at a time, all without any special license, and he NEVER once had an animal seized.
Bottom line - I have sold hundreds (if not thousands) of crested geckos to Canadian customers over the years and I have never once had anyone tell me they weren't allowed to bring their geckos back home. As long as you are honest with the border officials and you don't forget to declare the animals (that's the same as smuggling), you will be just fine.
Just to ease your concerns, I will offer a full replacement guarantee if you ever have a gecko seized at the Canadian border.
Most of the snake species we breed are CITES listed, meaning much paperwork is required to get these animals accross the border, and we're simply not set up to deal with that. If you have a shipper in the United States willing to handle CITES paperwork for you, we will be glad to help.
We are no longer maintaining an export license, and as such, no longer able to ship reptiles directly to Europe. There are several companies and breeders offering export services to the Hamm Show. If you have someone in the United States that we can ship your reptiles to, we will be happy to help. If you're ordering snakes, please be sure that your shipping agent in the United States knows that the snakes will require a CITES permit.
