Don is incredibly generous with his time and great knowledge. More like a friend than anything else. When it comes to corn snakes and human beings you can't do any better than this!


I have been involved in the corn snake hobby for well over 25 years and in that time I have never found a more honest, friendly, knowledgeable person than Don. I have been a customer for years and let me tell you.. You literally can not go wrong with South Mountain Reptiles.

During our winter shipping season, domestic next day door-to-door U.S. shipping will be only on Mondays and Wednesdays each week that do not potentially conflict with a holiday or commercial reptile event.  For any season of the year, each order is custom packed in a new box that includes applicable temperature modifiers (heat and/or gel packs) relative to anticipated weather and respective shipping routes. 

With over 45 years of animal packing and shipping experience, we guarantee live arrival if delivery is not delayed by the customer's failure to be available for the first delivery attempt by FedEx (or their contractors). 

Our winter shipping prerequisites are:

Destination (and FedEx Hub in Memphis) night temperatures must be above 14f.
Destination (and FedEx Hub in Memphis) airport must be operating normally
Destination city streets must facilitate delivery truck traffic

If temps are below 14f, but above 9f, and if city streets and airports are open to normal traffic, we will ship to most destinations - provided the customer picks up the package at a FedEx Facility per EXPRESS HOLD AT LOCATION services. In this way, excessive exposure to cold temperatures in the delivery trucks is reduced.
