About

We offer captive bred Ball Pythons, Boa constrictors, Blue Tongue Skinks and other exotic species from around the world. All available animals are captive bred here at RL Exotics. We ship Nationwide and Puerto Rico and can export larger orders ($10k + ) to most countries.

Shipping for baby ball pythons, boas, and other animals that fit in a 7x7x7 box is a flat rate $50 nationwide.

RL Exotics is managed and run by David Levinson and Mike Schultz.

For sales inquiries get in touch with us via MorphMarket inquiry or give Mike a call at 314-448-2128

We get dozens of messages a day so please be patient! I try to reply as quickly as I can. This is a more than full time job for me. i am often traveling for reptile shows as well so I might take a day or two to respond on weekends.

Store Policy
Shipping for baby ball pythons, boas, and other animals that fit in a 7x7x7 box is a flat rate $50 nationwide.

We are currently shipping on Tuesdays and Wednesdays ONLY due to exceptionally high volume through fedex and the risk of delays.

TERMS
By making a purchase, you agree to these terms.

Genetics Guarantee
Any 100% heterozygous trait is 100% guaranteed under any circumstances. We produce our hets with our own visual animals so there is no room for error. Possible hets are the result of breeding het x het or het x normal and will be listed as possible hets. These may or may not prove out.

Sometimes with high end/ multi gene combos it can be difficult to determine exactly what visual genes are present, so we cannot 100% guarantee these. We have multiple decades of breeding experience and use this knowledge gained over the years to identify and label multi gene animals as accurately as possible. Sometimes there might be an extra gene at play we weren’t aware of, or sometimes there might be slightly different genes than we initially thought but this is rare. We have produced dozens and dozens of world’s first combinations so sometimes there is nothing to compare to in order to be 100% accurate. If you have any questions about the genes listed in any ads, feel free to contact us before purchasing.

Health Guarantee
We guarantee that your reptile is healthy and feeding for us upon arrival. In the rare event your animal arrives in any condition less than perfect, any claims must be made immediately, in writing, upon arrival. Do not call without sending a message via our morphmarket, facebook, instagram, text, or email. Any claims made over 4 hours from the Fedex delivery confirmation are invalid.

All sales are final. Please make sure the animal you purchase is the one that you want. We do not accept returns - this is simply because we have a closed facility and this is the only way we can guarantee all animals we sell are healthy. Once an animal becomes exposed to any outside influences we cannot break our quarantine and allow it back into our facility as this would put the rest of our collection at risk. Once an animal is exposed to factors out of our control, we can no longer guarantee that animal’s health to a new customer.

*Spider Wobbles* As many of you are aware, the spider gene has an associated neurological defect along with it. This can be mild to moderate depending on the animal, and sometimes even varies in how it presents itself depending on the animal's age, stress level, feed response, etc. This "wobble" presents itself in shaky movements (sometimes) or in "corkscrewing" behavior (sometimes as well). Usually it does not affect the animal negatively besides a little goofy looking behavior. The main point here is that, it is always there, in every spider, always, but we can't exactly predict how it will show itself. If an animal has the spider gene, it has the spider wobble. Period. If you do not want to deal with the spider wobble, do not order an animal that has the spider gene. Our health guarantee does not cover KNOWN issues such as the wobble associated with the spider gene, as this is common knowledge and we assume that anybody who has done their proper, responsible research (or read these exact terms they agreed to when making a purchase here) should know about this issue already. We do not offer refunds or exchanges because of issues that were known about previous to the sale, so we do not offer refunds or exchanges due to the spider wobble. If you do not want an animal that has spider gene issues, do not buy an animal with the spider gene.

We ship FedEx priority overnight only. We ship solely at our discretion based on the weather and other factors such as holidays and local events. Our live arrival guarantee is only valid if the high and low temperatures are between 30 and 90 degrees at our location, and the final arrival destination. Our live arrival guarantee is immediately null and void if the customer is unavailable on the first Fedex delivery attempt.

We will sometimes make shipping exceptions at customers’ request but will notify the customer if their live arrival guarantee would be invalidated by that exception. We will never ship an animal if we feel there is any real risk of that animal’s health being put in jeopardy. Our animals come 100% first and we would rather lose a sale than risk a snake to poor shipping choices.

We may decide it is safer to ship to your local fedex ship center for pickup, rather than send it for residential delivery. This is at our discretion and we will notify the customer before making these decisions.

Pickup (Local or shows): We guarantee that your reptile is healthy and feeding for us upon pickup. Please examine the animal carefully and express any concerns or questions with us before making any purchase.

We cannot extend any guarantee past these terms, as we are no longer in control of and have no way to verify the conditions in which the animal is kept. Sometimes animals’ behavior will change based on new stimuli such as: being shipped, being brought to a show, being setup in a new environment they aren’t used to, etc. Please expect that your snake may not immediately feed and may show different behavior based on the additional stress of being sold and sent to a new environment. If you choose to make different husbandry choices than our recommendations then be aware that we cannot guarantee the same results we see with our tried and true methods.

Veterinary costs: in the event that it is necessary to take your animal to the vet, we have never and will never cover these costs. If an animal arrives in a condition that requires veterinary care we will send a return label to immediately send it back the next day. We have our own trusted veterinarians we work with. The unfortunate truth about exotics vets is that the quality of treatment and the qualifications of the doctors varies wildly from practice to practice and from state to state. We would rather use our trusted vets than risk poor treatment and diagnoses at an unknown and questionably qualified exotics vet. We recommend strongly against taking reptiles to “dog and cat” vets, even if they will see them, as we have found that many times these vets are not necessarily qualified and sometimes know less about the specific animals than the customers bringing them in.

We reserve the right to refuse sale for any reason. Typically this rule is invoked in instances where we do not believe our animal is going to a good home, but we may decline sales for any other reason at any time.



Payment plans may be arranged on a case by case basis. Typically we do not accept payment plans below $1000. We require a nonrefundable deposit to hold any animal. If the customer fails to meet the terms of the plan (including payment deadlines) then the contract is breached and the deposit considered forfeit. We reserve the right to decline offers for payment plans.

Our $50 flat rate shipping cost is stated:
1. underneath the price on the morph market ad
2. at the very top of these terms of service, visible underneath every morph market ad
3. At the bottom where our seller profile is located, at the bottom of every morph market ad
4. On the 'Inquire' Page, that you click on to send an inquiry
5. Actually a second time on the 'Inquire' page before you're allowed to hit 'send'
And finally, right here again at the top of this list. If you skip all that and inquire to ask how much shipping is I will charge you $65 instead :-)

These terms are subject to change at any time and without notice. If you do not agree with these terms at the time of sale, please do not make any purchase.

Effective January 15, 2021, MorphMarket's Default Store Policy specifies any terms which have not been overridden by this Seller's stated policy.
