International Orders

WILDLIFE REGULATIONS: All wildlife exports, by law, must be sent to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for inspection before leaving the U.S. Due to the high cost of upkeeping permits and tedious legal processes, we are no longer offering international wildlife shipments
EXCEPTIONS: Domesticated species have NO regulation or inspection requirements and can be shipped directly to you without hassle. These species include horse, cow, pig, goat, domestic rabbit, domestic feline and canine, and many others. Please note that some countries may restrict the import of domesticated specimens, always check your local laws before ordering! Just because I'm allowed to export it doe not mean you're allowed to import it!
