Special Request for a Live Reptile

Reptiles Lounge

Please enter your email if you are interested in learning more about the availability of a specific species. 

We have a network of local reptile and amphibian breeders and may be able to locate your desired animal. To maintain our quality, we do NOT work with large-scale breeders. Most reptiles are from the California area, so please be aware that shipping will apply.

Current species available: 

  • Ball Pythons
  • Panther Chameleon

Pre-order hatchlings: 

  • Argentine Black and White Tegu (waitlist)

Shipping per animal is just $49.99. Reptiles are shipped via FedEx Priority Overnight and are delivered by 12:00 pm to most locations, Tuesday through Friday. Reptiles Lounge does not ship frogs internationally. Scheduling of order is dependent on your availability and weather.

Please respond to our Reptile Shipping Information email, to ensure you will be there to receive the animals when they arrive. We'll email back to confirm after checking your local weather conditions.

We can ship directly to your address, as long as your local overnight low temperature is above 39F the night of shipping, and your high temperature is below 91F at noon on the day of arrival. If your overnight lows are below 40F but above 29F, Reptiles Lounge can ship to your closest FedEx Staff Location that accepts Hold for Pickup packages. If your high temperature is over 90F at the guarantee 'delivered by' time (typically 12pm), Reptiles Lounge can ship to your closest FedEx Staff Location that accepts Hold for Pickup packages. If your overnight low is below 30F, Josh's Frogs retains the right to hold frog shipping until temperatures increase due to safety concerns. We will hold the frogs at our facility for any length of time necessary to ensure that the frogs you order are received in the best of health. This policy is designed with the best interests and health of our animals at heart!
