Conditions of sale.

All animals offered for sale are guaranteed feeding on mice or rats of appropriate size. In the unlikely event that your animal does not feed you must report this to me within 7 days of purchase for a full refund or no refund will be payable. Hatchlings are sexed using probes. Sexes can not be guaranteed as there is always a very small chance of error. However probing snakes has been found to be very accurate ( about 98 % ). I prefer buyers to collect their animals from my premises by appointment only but delivery within most of the UK can be arranged at an additional cost. (Overnight carrier from 30.00 per shipment). All animals remain the property of S Sharp until paid for in full. Please allow 7-10 days for personal cheques to clear. There is no delay for postal orders. Please do not send cash by post.

Color morphs - color, patern and genetics.

There are now hundreds of named varieties of morphs of corn snakes that denote color and / or pattern.

Some of the differences between the morphs can be very small or even at the genetic level. Some snakes even change color and markings as they mature, making identification of some morphs extremely difficult. While I endeavoured to ensure that the snakes offered are the correct morphs I do not have access to blood tests to ensure the whole genetic makeup of any individual snakes. I therefore do NOT guarantee any morph color, pattern or genetics and buyers should satisfy themselves with any morph identification before buying any snake.

All livestock purchased from myself is made pursuant to a shipment contract. This basically means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon delivery to the courier.

ADVANCE RESERVATION and DEPOSITS ON 2008 HATCHLINGS 

Following requests from some of my buyers I now take pre-hatching reservations on my hatchlings. 
I will record reservations in the order in which I receive them.  
I will hold two lists for buyers. Those that have paid a deposit and those that have just expressed an interest.
People who have paid a deposit will of course have first choice of the available animals.
I would request a deposit of 10 per snake.
 
When your animals are ready to despatch, I will contact you and ask for the balance payment and arrange delivery. 
 
Deposits are are non-refundable if you change your mind, so please don't send a payment unless you're sure about what you want.
I will return your deposit if I fail to produce the animals you wanted originally, but not if you change your mind or cancell the order. 
 
Payment can be made by cash, postal order, or cheque made payable to Dr S. Sharp.
Postal payment to be sent to Dr S Sharp, 41 Gullane Close, East Stanley, County Durham, DH9 6UR, England.  
PayPal payments made to the email Stephen@SnakeBreeder.com
If you prefer let me know the email address you use for PayPal payments and I will get PayPal to invoice you.
 
Limited stocks. In nature clutches are roughly 50% male and 50% female. However in the hobby we are increasingly asked to supply female high numbers. Obviously this is impossible to do as, in most cases, we may have only a single clutch of any particular color morph of corn snake. To tackle this situation I have decided NOT to supply female only orders until other orders have been met. This means priority will be given to those people who request pairs of any particular color morph. If I then have additional females in the clutch I will make these available for sale.

Please note we supply the UK only.

Trade and Bulk Orders.
If you require 20 or more snakes I will be able to supply you with up to 20% discount. Further details on request. Please note that all discounted orders must be paid for in full at the time of ordering.
