We have been raising ball pythons since 2011.  We pride ourselves in breeding quality animals. We are always available to answer any questions you may have or just talk snakes if that is what you want to do.  When you find that special snake to be your next family member we will gladly ship to you or if you are local or going to a show we are attending we will be more than happy to meet with you in person.  We accept cash, checks, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, Zelle, and Venmo or PayPal Friends and Family. If paying with check, funds must clear the bank before we will consider the animal ready for shipping.  We do ship Fedex overnight.  Shipping cost depends on where you live and weight of animal.   Customer must pay shipping.  We can combine shipping if multiple animals are purchased.

Seller Policy

Please read our store policy/terms & conditions carefully as they will be upheld. Failure to read will under no circumstance be a reason to not uphold them.  

Here at SMS Morphs,LLC we will make every effort to ensure your transaction is a positive one. All animals will be honestly represented, free of mites and ticks, and 100% healthy at the time of delivery. Every effort will be made to properly sex animals, but please be sure to confirm the sex upon receipt. If for whatever reason you are not happy with the animal you receive, you must notify SMS Morphs,LLC within 24 hours.

We accept the following forms of payment: cash, check, credit card, Zelle, CashApp, Venmo, or Paypal (friends and family ONLY).  If paying by check, the funds must clear the bank before the animal(s) will be considered ready for shipment. If paying with paypal and payment is not made using friends and family the transaction will be refunded and the animal(s) will be considered available.

SMS Morphs,LLC does offer payment plans. A minimum deposit of 25% is required as a deposit to hold an animal. All deposits are NON REFUNDABLE. Any payments made after the deposit can be used as a deposit toward another animal we have available. You will have 14 days to transfer payments. This option is a courtesy and will only be honored once. We will always try to work with you when possible on payment, shipping, or other details.

All animals will be shipped overnight via FedEx.

For the safety of our animals, our default method of shipping is to your local FedEx Hub to be held for pickup. This is the safest method of shipment since it avoids the delivery truck; where most delivery mishaps occur. We are able to ship to a residence upon request.

In order to safely ship the temperatures must be no less than 40 degrees and no higher than 90 degrees. These temperature restrictions apply to the shipper's address, the main FedEx hub (Memphis and/or Indianapolis), and the receiver's address.

Animals will only be shipped out on Tuesday or Wednesday unless prior arrangements are agreed upon.

Customers will be provided a tracking number and should pick up the animal promptly after it arrives at the customer center and becomes available for pick up. Packages held at hubs are usually available for pickup around 8-9am so live arrival guarantee is void on any animal(s) not picked up within 2 hours of being available for pickup at the hub.

A photo ID is required at the time of pick up so please make sure the person picking up the animal is the one named on the shipping label.

All of our animals must eat a minimum 3-5 consecutive meals without hesitation before they are considered available.
Most of our collection feeds readily on frozen/thawed rats; although most would take live if offered. We find frozen/thawed to be easiest for us and many of our customers. Your receipt will have the size and date of the last meal. Please keep in mind the shipping process is very stressful on the animal and it may take several weeks for it to begin feeding regularly again. SMS Morphs,LLC is always here to answer any questions you may have about feeding and will provide advice if you have any issues. Be aware that it is not uncommon for ball pythons to go off feed when stressed or not housed properly.

It is the customer’s responsibility to learn how to properly care for the animal(s) they purchase, however we are always here to answer any questions you may have.
