Based in Central Florida
We try to ship on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in order to avoid delays that may occur on other days of the week.
We are able to ship out within 1-2 business days.
Reptiles are securely packed in a deli cup or cotton bag and placed in an appropriately sized box with a temperature stabilizing pack as needed. The box size is important so that movement of the contents and temperature changes within the box are minimized
Our reptiles are shipped to every state within the Continental US as permitted by state and local laws.
Of course! Continuing customer support is important to us.
Although I've had a lifelong love of reptiles, it wasn't until the early 1990's that I began working with reptiles, specifically Varanus exanthematicus. My family eventually caught my passion and we started breeding bearded dragons and corn snakes in the early 2000's. Tegus were added in 2006 and we quickly fell in love with them.
We breed animals to supply people with healthy and attractive animals to add to their life experience. Our goal is to add something positive in temperament or appearance and strengthen the species.
It must be remembered that tegus are large, intelligent lizards. They require a large enclosure, a nutritious diet, and careful handling.
Yes we do! Our educational business, Zoo Mom Science, LLC, was started to allow people to learn about reptiles and develop an appreciate for them rather than a fear of them. We also accept reptiles from homes that can no longer care for them and keep those animals as rescues or find a suitable permanent home.
At the Double R Ranch, we spend a lot of time caring for reptiles. We also enjoy getting out into nature through boating and trail riding our horses.
