I generally ship Tuesdays. To ship on Tuesday, your order must be made by Monday at 6 pm Mountain time. Please let me know ASAP if you need another ship date, and we’ll see what we can work out.
small priority box: $8.30
Some small cultures (up to 3) can ship priority for $8.30, although in hot or cold weather I recommend shipping in a larger container for better insulation, and the possibility of adding heat or cold packs.
Medium priority box: $15.05
Most cultures can fit in a medium priority box, even when combined with other cultures. Heat and cold packs may be recommended. A 72-hour heat pack or cold pack is provided when needed at no extra charge.

Terms of Service
I will use the shipping address in PayPal unless you specify a different preferred shipping address. You are responsible for making sure your shipping address is up to date in PayPal, or specifically notifying me of a preferred shipping address along with your order.
Live Arrival Guarantee
LAG is provided if you choose Priority Express (1 or 2 day) as long as temperatures are above freezing and below 95 F in my ZIP code and yours during the time of transit and the signature requirement is NOT waived. There may be exceptions for certain temperature-sensitive species, which is will note at the time of inquiry. I may suggest or require that you pay a nominal fee for cold or heat pack(s) if temperatures are near these extremes.
(If there is a DOA under LAG coverage, send me clear photographs of the deceased animals within 6 hours of receipt. I will refund the purchase price (not including shipping) or reship once, at my discretion, although every effort will be made to accommodate your preference if one is expressed.)
