Yes, Reptiles by Mack does ship all over the World to most countries however, as an export, international orders require various inspections and fees from the US Fisheries and Wildlife. These necessary, legal requirements will add substantial fees and international shipping charges of between $300 to $500 depending on the country. This is why we only export larger orders and have a minimum order of $3000 USD plus shipping and miscellaneous fees.

To the best of our ability these states Georgia, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin require a veterinarian certificate of health that is an additional $15.

Sexing of our reptiles are not 100% guaranteed. Babies and Juveniles are usually difficult to sex accurately.
