By purchasing from Elemental Herps, you are agreeing to these following sales terms.



A non-refundable deposit is required to hold any animal.  A deposit of 50% for animals up to $400 in value and 25% for any animal over $400 is required.  Deposits are payable via Email Money Transfer (EMT), PayPal, direct deposit, cash or Visa/Mastercard.


Payment Plans

Short term payment plans for up to 45 days are available for purchases up to $700.  Long term payment plans are available for purchases greater than $700.  If the buyer is unable to fulfill the purchase plan within the agreed upon timeframe, they will forfeit the animal(s) as well as  deposit.  All purchases must be paid for in full prior to shipping.


All of our animals are guaranteed to be  in perfect health unless otherwise stated.  Our animals come with a 7 day health guarantee, provided that proper care requirements are followed.  Animals will be properly sexed (unless sold as unsexed) and well established on appropriate, unscented prey items.  If there is an error in sexing, we will exchange the animal with the correct sex.
