Shipping Guide

Record-breaking e-commerce orders, supply chain issues, and weather events may cause package delays.  Wildlife Wonders will purchase your requested shipping option; however, we cannot guarantee shipping durations and/or on time delivery.  Delays caused by shipping carriers are not eligible for shipping cost refunds.


STATEMENT FROM UPS on 1.1.2022    Suspension of Small Package Service Guarantee

Until further notice, UPS has suspended the UPS Service Guarantee for all shipments to any destination, at all service levels.  As the effects of the Coronavirus impact our infrastructure, we will continue to seek guidance from local and national government entities regarding applicable regulations.  Please continue to visit's Coronavirus web page for the most up-to-date information regarding the impact of Coronavirus on UPS Small Package services. The UPS Service Guarantee is subject to change. For further details, see the UPS Tariff/Terms and Conditions of Service.


We currently offer FREE GROUND SHIPPING when shipping GROUND only to the lower 48 states, on orders over $99 (after other promotions and discounts and before taxes and shipping). Free ground shipping offers are for orders shipped to one address in the contiguous 48 states only.  This free shipping offer does not apply to any expedited shipping methods. The shipping method may be USPS, UPS, FEDEX, Sure-Post or Smart-Post at our discretion determined by shipping origin, destination, package size and weight.  All shipping costs are based upon real time rates using weight and/or dimensions of the item shipped. We do not require a signature upon delivery for our shipments.  Some exceptions to this policy may include furniture, very heavy items or very large items. Shipping surcharges for these items will be calculated and communicated to the customer prior to processing an order.   Only one promo code, coupon code, free shipping code or special promotion may be used with a single order.

Shipping times will vary with ground shipping and could take up to a week depending upon destinations. UPS DOES NOT USUALLY DELIVER ON SATURDAY OR SUNDAY. When calculating ship times, the day of shipment is not one of the days and weekends and holidays are also not part of the calculation.  If you place an order on Tuesday and request TWO DAY AIR, if it is available to ship next business day it would arrive on Friday.  If you need to have quicker shipping and shorter times for delivery, please upgrade your shipping from free shipping to EXPEDITED shipping which is available on most items and is based upon real time rates. Please note that the expedited shipping time guarantee does not apply when weather events or other events beyond anyone's control occur that prevent packages arriving on time. There will not be refunds for payments made for expedited shipping in this event.
