Itinerary #29, September 13th!! Get Your orders in and ready for transport!!

NOTA BENE #1: Please follow this link to our new Obscure Gems Reptiles, LLC, page:, and read our Conditional Live Arrival Guarantee (more like Exemptions from Live Arrival Guarantee) and Payment Terms & Conditions, the latter currently Pinned to the top of the page.

NOTA BENE #2: Regarding the Payment Terms & Conditions mentioned above, there will be an amendment very soon, a very slight change: Any Shipments added after departure which incur a new Stop(s), will have to be paid for immediately, for just one (1) added Stop can alter an itinerary drastically (reconfigured to save the most gas and time overall, that's how our itineraries are determined), and we are NOT putting our faith in a prospective Shipment, altering the itinerary to accommodate the new Stop(s), only to have the Shipment drop off and make us reroute to the previous itinerary. Id est; Your immediate payment guarantees we won't be wasting our time and gas, nor wasting everybody else's time, nor having Shipments (animals) on the road longer than necessary, and should the Seller and/or Customer (Recipient) cancel after starting this rerouted itinerary, there will be NO refund!


PRICE MATRIX (for multiple Pickups being delivered at the same time, to one [1] Destination)

One (1) Pickup = $150
Two (2) Pickups = $275
Three (3) Pickups = $375
Four (4) Pickups = $450
Five (5) Pickups = $525
Six (6) Pickups = $600
Successive Pickups will be $75/ea on top of the $600.

Another way of wording it:

1st Pickup = $150
2nd Pickup = $125
3rd Pickup = $100
4th Pickup = $75
5th Pickup = $75
6th Pickup = $75
Successive Pickups will continue to be $75/ea.

NOTA BENE: This is per itinerary by the way, not in the whole history of using our service. Id est; a client during our July 2022 itinerary thought that using our service a second time (successive itinerary), Shipments (Pickups) would only be $125 for that second itinerary. No. This is not how that works. The first Shipment (Pickup) of an itinerary will always be $150, and so on down the Price Matrix from there.

Also, 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 San Angelo and straight up through the greater eastern halves/portions of OK/KS/NE, up to Minneapolis, the lower halves of WI and MI, and everything within. Create imaginary latitudinal and longitudinal lines if You will, and there You have it.

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; Cheyenne, WY; Grygla, MN
$75: Tucson, AZ

Very rarely, a Shipment will incur both the Seller and Customer (Recipient) being in Extended Territories, in which there will be two (2) surcharges. Exempli gratia: El Paso, TX-->Alliance, WY would be $225 total: $150 (base fee) + $50 (El Paso surcharge) + $25 (Alliance surcharge).

Exceptionally large Shipments still incur their own surcharge (possibly on top of an Extended Territory surcharge[s]), 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. It is typically a $25 or $50 surcharge.

...I will be hitting the road again on September 13. 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 September 28, I have 63 Shipments/72 Stops lined up so far. See photos 2-4, and two (2) Replies with a total of five (5) more 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 [Recipients] will be apprised of renewed ETAs ASAP):

≈14,046 miles, divided by ≈30 MPG ≈ 468 gallons, times $3.782/gal (AAA National Average as of 9/29) ≈ $1,771 in gas, let alone wear n' tear (e.g., synthetic LOF every month/$80, tires every ≈3 months/$700), tolls (<$200/mo.), food ($400-$500), 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: These Google Maps GPS screenshots aren't entirely accurate, as we use Apple Maps from Stop-to-Stop, and from Chandler, AZ-->Cheyenne, WY in the July 2022 itinerary for example, Apple Maps took us up through Utah to I-70E, which we were on for 318 miles, not what You see depicted there in Google Maps. 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 (see link above for terms and 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, LLC’s, Animal Transport Service a shot, You will not be disappointed!!
