My dragon is being shipped an extra day

Postby oliver21917 » Thu Jun 24, 2021 10:16 am

Hi, I hope I’m posting this on the right section.

I ordered a baby dragon last week, and it was scheduled to be shipped Wednesday for a Thursday delivery. Well, today rolls around and I get a notification that they were unable to deliver because they had the wrong address. After I freak out and call the fed ex number, I find out that the address was correct? :| So, I guess the driver may have been new. Not sure what happened there.

Apparently there’s a whole processing of 24 hours before they can deliver it again, I offered to pick it up, however, the 24 processing applies to that too. I’m freaked out because of how long the poor thing is being forced in there. Do I need to prepare myself for a dead dragon? :(

Depending on where he is kept over night if outside the dragon may not survive if he gets over heated ---

He should be fine, they should take him back inside the warehouse for the night.

However, I'd be asking for the manager of the warehouse or what not and explain that this is a live animal that needs to be picked up immediately. They should be willing to work something out with you.

Thank you for all your replies! Luckily, the breeder was able to get through to them and I picked her up. She’s just fine, very alert.

She’s an orange leather back. Breeder also told be her siblings marked her snout right before shipment, during a feeding.
