Shipping, Guarantee and Refunds

  • By purchasing from Roonami in any way, we assume you have read and agreed to these terms and our Terms of Service.



Payment for your order is required to save your animal! Shipping cost is calculated in a separate invoice. EMAIL AHEAD if you want a quote prior to checking out. **Any orders canceled due to shipping terms will be subject to 5% restock fee.** Do not select this option (CANADA WIDE SHIPPING) if you live in Edmonton. All pets and live feeders must be picked up in person.


All animals are guaranteed to arrive healthy and alive if shipped at appropriate temperatures. The live arrival guarantee will be voided if you are not home to receive the animal(s) at first delivery attempt.

Change of address by the purchaser after shipping voids the guarantee.

Delays are sometimes possible due to carrier issues and we pack the animals based on this possibility. The purchaser will be provided a tracking number and will be responsible for checking the status of delivery. We cannot be responsible for carrier delays and the guarantee will be void if delayed.

The purchaser is responsible for the husbandry after they take possession of the animal(s). We have no control over care once the animal(s) is in the possession of the customer.

If there are any concerns with the purchase we must be notified within 1 hour from the delivery time as entered according to the tracking number.

In the event of a dead on arrival (DOA), we will replace the animal(s) or offer a substitute of equal value, or a store credit can also be issued for the animal if a replacement is unavailable. There are no refunds.

We cannot be held responsible for shipping charges incurred for upholding our guarantee; they are the responsibility of the purchaser.

The purchaser MUST notify us immediately and provide photographic evidence of any DOA or visibly unhealthy. If we do not hear from the purchaser within 1 hour of the animal(s) being received, we will assume the animal(s) have arrived alive and in good health.

Shipping Damages

If an item was damaged in shipping. You must notify us within 3 days of receipt. You must keep the damaged item, and the original shipping container, as well as packing materials, until a file has been claimed with the carrier.  Retain the item and packaging, the carrier may send someone to inspect the damage. Glass is not covered under any circumstances.



The last day to ship is December 7th due to delays due to holiday orders. We resume service in January after the holidays but its usually too cold until end of January. Live animals are only shipped during warmer days when it is safe. Consider ordering ahead of time. All live feeder, animal or plant orders are shipped with a 40 hour heat pack and added to the shipping cost.



Please be aware of your own local wildlife laws and regulations. No shipments will be knowingly sent in violation of any provincial or city bylaws. We cannot keep up with bylaws outside of our own city, so it is the purchaser’s responsibility to know the laws in the Purchaser's area and to abide by them.

We reserve the right to ask for ID before shipping any order. For fraud prevention reasons we are not able to change the shipping address on an order after it is placed. An order must be submitted again if the purchaser wishes to ship to a different shipping address and that shipping address must be specified on the new order. The billing address and shipping address must match or the order may not be sent out at our discretion to prevent fraud.


We are not responsible for any veterinary expenses or costs incurred by the buyer for any animal. If you take any animal to a veterinarian, you do so entirely at your own expense. Please bring any issues to our attention within 1 hour of arrival or inspection in store before leaving. Roonami will never knowingly sell an animal that is sick, unhealthy or not eating. Due to many elements outside of our control, we extend no warranty on life of any animal outside the terms listed here. The exclusion to this is any animal sold as 'special needs' and the conversation was held between 'Roonami' and 'the purchaser' beforehand for its requirement.

For animals sold as a male or female, you must double check the sex of the animal within 72 hours of arrival. In the event an animal appears to be the wrong sex, we must be notified within 72 hours. Otherwise, the transaction is considered complete. 



No refunds or returns accepted. Corded products, bulbs, battery battery-operated displays, are final sale. We may offer in-store credit on sealed items such as substrates, foods, and terrariums.
