Shipping & Returns



USPS is experiencing delays which may or may not effect your shipment. For that reason we are only shipping live insects Mon thru Wednesday. If you order live insects we would strongly recommend you have them held at your local post office. We package our insects very safely and they can tolerate being in the shipping box during any delays. The biggest concern would be letting the package sit at your home in the heat or cold. Our live arrival guarantee is still valid if you follow all recommendations. However at this time we have no control over how long your package will take to arrive. Out of the hundreds of orders we have shipped in the last month only 2 have arrived more than one day late. If you have any questions please feel free to text us at 402 685 3234

Thank you for your suport!

By purchasing from Reptile Restaurant you are agreeing to these terms:

  • We ship Monday through Thursday and orders placed before noon CST will ship same day, 
  • Your order will be packaged in a muslin bag with egg crate inside to provide a safe place for the insects to travel. The bag is then placed securely in a box for the journey. Inside the bag will be enough food for the insects to not only survive but thrive inside the box.
