All orders will always be trackable once shipped
Note: Shipping is typically via FedEx, but USPS services may be utilized. Standard shipping typically uses FedEx SmartPost which may handoff to the USPS for final delivery.
Processing time can vary depending on the time of year, but most orders ship after 1-2 business days (M-F). Anything ordered around major holidays will likely experience demand-delays that may add 3-4 days to your processing time before your items ships. This is unavoidable due simply to a higher-than-usual demand around those times.
We carry two types of products: reptile and amphibian supplies as well as lifestyle products, including books, home goods, apparel, art, and commissioned work. Given our lifestyle products represent independent stores, the price of shipping may differ or not qualify for the flat rate. This will be noted on the product page.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Can I use the rheostat/thermostat with a Reptisun, Avian Sun or Power Sun UV?
These lamps need specific line voltages; they cannot be used with dimmers/rheostats.
How can I get the maximum out of a lamp?
Minimizing handling: lamps that get moved or vibrated burn out quickly. Make sure that the fixture isnt being moved regularly. It is best to use a quality ceramic socket, not a plastic socket. You can check your fixture by unplugging it and looking at the metal tab in the center – where the bulb screws in. This tab can be pulled slightly forward to ensure that it makes a good contact with the bulb.
Does this lamp emit UVB?
Yes! This lamp provides the full visible spectrum as well as UVA and UVB. What is UVB and why does my reptile need it?
