LIVE INSECT ORDERS

Please note that all of our live insects can only be purchased in lots/quantities of 250 via our website - e.g. 250, 500, 750 and so on.

If you require a custom amount of any of our live insects, please contact us by phone on (07) 5533 8375 or by email at sales@livefoods.com.au to process your order any further.

LIVE REPTILE ORDERS

Whilst we do freight reptile livestock around Australia (excluding Tasmania), it is subject to relative import/export wildlife permits for each state/territory. We will also need to confirm that the purchaser carries the appropriate license for the specie(s) they are attempting to purchase.

In saying that, once your order has been placed, you will receive a phone call from the Livefoods Unlimited staff in order to process your enquiry any further.

Note: Shipping costs will not be calculated, and no reptile livestock orders will be dispatched until after we have made contact.


If you have any further questions or are unsure about any of the above, please contact us prior to placing an order for live insects and/or live reptiles.
