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.. Most wildlife shipments require a $100 inspection fee** for immediate shipment. All export fees are in addition to item price and shipping costs.

**Please earch the CITES database for protection status on your species of interest.
If a species does not show up in the CITES appendices, it can be exported immediately with a $100 inspection fee. If a species does show up in the appendices it is protected and will require $300 in legal export and permit fees and a wait time of up to 6 months or more for permit approval.
HOW IT WORKS: Your order is sent to a designated USFWS inspection facility in Seattle, Washington. After inspection, the order is then shipped out of the country to you. The USFWS collects the inspection fees from us directly during this time. You will likely receive your order in 2 - 6 weeks. All orders will have USPS tracking numbers, however once the package leaves U.S. soil the tracking system is no longer updated.
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!
