We will begin holding tortoises for Christmas arrival on December 1st. To have your tortoise held for shipping as close as possible to Christmas, make a note during checkout with the date you want it to arrive to you (December 18th, 19th, or 20th).

Because Christmas is on a Tuesday this year (and UPS is closed on the 25th as well as the 23rd), the last possible shipping date prior to Christmas is on Wednesday, December 19th for arrival on December 20th. This will leave an additional day of "wiggle room" in case there is any delays, they will still arrive on the 21st. In talking with UPS about the potential problems of delayed "live" shipments, they are heavily encouraging us to only ship them out on the Monday-Wednesday prior to Christmas. Long story short, UPS told us "don't risk trying to ship tortoises out later than the 19th." 

Keep in mind, everything will be reliant on acceptable shipping weather when Christmas comes! We generally need it to be 15 degrees or higher for the overnight low the morning of arrival in your location, or we just can't ship them. Unfortunately with weather, it's not predictable very far out, so if you anticipate being colder than that, there's a chance your order will need to be delayed or canceled (we will hold them for a delayed shipment, or cancel it if you would rather cancel). When ordering, please let us know your expected low temperature on the morning of arrival, and we will verify this before we ship to make sure the tortoises are safe.
