    I also have bought many many herps from them. As well as supplies, feeders, and dead food. Nothing they have sent me has ever had a problem. In my book they are one of the best. Of coarse all reptile online retailers are going to have a couple unsatisfied customers. But that is business. Compared to most retailers, lllreptile has not had much complaints at all.

    ah ok
    maybe just one bad apple outta the bunch

    only thing i dont really care for is there not so good guarantee but if they are as good as you say they are, cool i may order my leos from them afterall. Whats up with the regrown tails though?

    What regrown tail? You now it is very hard to keep so many herps in perfect condition. Out of a couple hundred or thousand leos. Some are probably bound to lose a tail here and there. As well tail nips. Even people who own beardies and other people get nips, leg/s missing, ect... Any ways, if the tail is regrown to a good condition it is all fine. They usually always sell defected leos with regrown tails, beardies with stubbed tails, missing leg for a better price. of coarse a missing leg on a beardy, or a regrown tail is not going to affect they're health if they were taken care of properly afterwards.

    I always prefer shows or private breeders over 'wholesale' retailers. However I know that one or both may not be an option. Good luck though, b/c Im looking into getting a pair for breeding as well.

    *edit* and after this weekend I hate, but don't condemn, shipping of reptiles. Over priced and no where near as reliable as it should be.

    well they're 65.00 and I've seen them like 90.00 and the shipping isn't that bad when I look at some places (like 40 bucks) I'm paying about 9.95 for shiping and I just went to a show Sunday and they had no Gargoyel geckos
    but like 50 million crested geckos and lepard geckos and fat tailed gecks (I have to say I did get a leopard and a fat tailed). and there isn't any "private breeders" around where I live unless I go to a show and they were like a day or two drive away from there the one I bought from was like from around Georgia or something.and the one guy didn't know llike anything I asked them what subtrate to use for a fat tailed geckos and he said 'huh subtarte?' and sorry if I spelled something wronge it's normal lol

    If a breeder couldn't answer a simple question like that, I would think twice about buying from him. Are your herps healthy that you bought from him?

    yea they are and that was his brother or something he slways said to go ask the main guy the fat tailed just shedded right when I got home (or around there) he's fine and the only thing that's wronge with leopard is he likes to sleep A LOT!! lol and we also tried to put my two leopards together and mine bit my brothers :( but he's fine it was more like a pinch

    Chronic, may I ask why you despise the shipping of reptiles?

    I have found a good place for me to get my reptiles, Regal Reptiles in Providence, Rhode Island which is only like 20 minutes from my house. Im going to check them out in a couple of weeks to see what they have available.

    Yeah Chronic why do you despise the shipping of reptiles????

    Why I hate the shipping of reptiles: Its not as reliable as it should be and its very stressful for both the animal and the reciever. I know its usually necessary and Im not saying don't do it, it should just be a last option in my opinion.
