Animal safety in transit is very important to us. Temperatures are researched carefully before each order ships and hot and cold packs are included as necessary. We have a NO SHIP policy when temperatures drop below 20 degrees (day of arrival low temp) in the winter and above 80 degrees (day of low arrival temp) in the summer. If the low temperatures in your area are between 20 -32 degrees in the winter, we do require shipping to a UPS Customer Center or Fed Ex Hub. Please provide an accurate delivery address before shipping.


We guarantee not only live arrival, but also stand behind the animals* that we sell for a period of 7 days. Although rare, if an animal arrives DOA, please email pictures within 24 hours. Once verified we can issue a store credit or refund.


We only guarantee live arrival (not 7-days) for feeder insects and amphibians as well as ANY shipments during the winter months when temperatures drop below 32 degrees. * Also, the exceptions to the live animal arrival guarantee would be nestling (pinky or fuzzy) or unweaned (hopper) mice and rats. We do require a wet mom to be purchased with every order of pinky, small fuzzy, and large fuzzy mice or rats for customers that require shipments via the airlines.

“We have been placing weekly orders with NWZOO since 2019. NWZOO staff has always been professional, courteous, and has consistently provided top notch customer service with a personal touch. The selection of animals is broad and pricing of animals on the website is extremely competitive. Packing and shipping has always been thorough and professional. Animals arrive safely and in good health. It is obvious that the staff takes good care of the animals. We will continue to utilize NWZOO for our reptile & invertebrate needs.”

Paladin Exotics

“NW Zoo has been a great asset to my growing business. They always have a huge variety of tarantulas and price them reasonably. They often have species available that you cannot find anywhere else – such as CITES restricted Brachypelma and Poecilotheria. I am a regular customer and order weekly. The staff have always been friendly and helpful. I recommend NW Zoo to my vendor friends all the time.”
