Itinerary #26, June 14th!! Get Your orders in and ready for transport!!

PRICE MATRIX (for multiple Pickups going to one [1] Destination)

One (1) Pickup = $150
Two (2) Pickups = $275
Three (3) Pickups = $375
A fourth or more Pickups will be $75/ea on top of the $375.

NOTA BENE: This is when ALL Stops, id est all Pickups + Delivery, are within Standard Territory, id est: All of Pennsylvania down the east coast to Tampa, across the Gulf down to San Antonio, over to Abilene and straight up through the greater eastern halves/portions of OK/KS/NE, lower portion of MN, lower halves of WI and MI, and everything within.

Id est; for each Stop, whether Pickup or Delivery, outside of Standard Territory, there will be a surcharge. This is called Extended Territory. Examples:

$25: Fort Myers, FL; Laredo, Lubbock & Odessa, TX; Alliance, NE
$50: Miami, FL; El Paso, TX; Grygla, MN
$75: Tucson, AZ

Exceptionally large Shipments still incur their own surcharge (possibly on top of an Extended Territory surcharge), whether a single large animal (exempli gratia, an adult D. polylepis, O. hannah or Lachesis sp.), a large pair of animals (e.g., full-grown B. rhinoceros), or a gazillion animals.

...Lois and I will be hitting the road again on June 14. For those who are unaware of what all of this pertains to, please read my original ‘(VENOMOUS) ANIMAL DELIVERY SERVICE’ ad posted on 4 September 2020:, finally revamped on 7 May 2022, and read all of the positive feedback on the first of the aforementioned links (11/3).

I will detail how the process works which is quite simple honestly, via a pre-typed description that I copy/paste to everyone, and over a phone call if need be. In the meantime, please check out the previous ads for an idea of how these itineraries work, the smooth flow n’ logical order of Pickups and Deliveries that is, and infer what You can.

As of June 23, we have 44 Shipments/59 Stops lined up so far. See photos 2-4, and a Reply with four (4) photos, for Google Maps screenshots of the current itinerary, and the corresponding list here (id est, 'current' because more Stops [Shipments] will likely be added which, logically, will alter the itinerary, but which all affected Sellers and Customers will be apprised of renewed ETAs ASAP):

Wednesday, 6/29 (not depicted)
Levittown: Delivery (from Tallahassee Pickup)

~12,354 miles, divided by ~30 MPG = 412 gallons, times $5.000/gal (AAA National Average as of 6/17) = $2,059 in gas, let alone wear n' tear (e.g., synthetic LOF every month/$80, tires every ~3 months/$700), tolls ($53.20 alone for the Levittown trip!), food, et cetera. Not that anyone has ever given me issue on my transport fee, knock on wood, and I thank You All for Your understanding and acceptance, but this is to explain why rates had increased in February should there ever be any question or complaint, and further to explain surcharges for Extended Territory (see above).

Nota Bene: Deliveries from us will not show a Pickup, nor will Pickups for us show a Delivery, in the GPS screenshots. This is to explain any discrepancy in the number of Pickups to the number of Deliveries, and, ultimately, to the number of Shipments I claim. The intention is to list everywhere we are stopping and traveling through in case You have something to add. Also, added Shipments do not necessarily mean added Stops if both Pickup and Delivery are locations we are already hitting up. Id est, added Shipments will not necessarily add time (save playing Tetris to fit everything as well as more animals to inspect in our daily inspections).

Please share these ads like wildfire! The more Shipments the merrier! And as far as payment options and quotes, please inquire.

I thank You in advance for Your (continuing) patronage!! I offer many benefits to my service, including but not limited to: Daily inspections with videos of each animal sent as proof (Customers love this!); conditional live arrival guarantee (ask for terms or details); no special crating nor IATA labels; hand-delivery to Your home, work or public place of Your choice; flexibility and versatility including able to change course last minute (e.g. from home to work); direct communication (and timely responses) with the carrier of Your precious gems.

Give Obscure Gems Reptiles’ Animal Transport Service a shot, You will not be disappointed!!
