Christmas Open Hours and Last Livestock Delivery Dates

Thursday, 31st December 2015

We are informing all of our customers of the last dispatch dates for livestock, invert and frozen orders. Also information on opening times over the festive period.

Please take note and order well in advance as weather conditions could prevent orders from being dispatched especially with livestock.

Livestock Orders

Although most livestock is “onsite”, some species may need to be ordered in from our suppliers; therefore we would ask customers to place orders no later than Monday 7th December for a Christmas delivery.

The last reptile orders to be dispatched for Christmas will be Wednesday 16th December for delivery on Thursday 17th, however we must book these with our reptile courier by the latest Tuesday 15th midday.

Severe weather conditions could prevent dispatch of livestock orders – we will always put the wellbeing of our animals first.

Invert and Frozen Orders

These orders will have a last posting date of Wednesday 16th to guarantee arrival with no delays, this is weather dependant.

Livefood Orders

Monday 21st December will be the last day of posting all livefoods to arrive before Christmas and Monday 28th December for the New Year.


All other equipment will be dispatched as normal.
