Online stores that sell inexpensive reptiles include ReptileCity.com, BackwaterReptiles.com and ReptilesNCritters.com. Each of the websites provides home delivery and sells a range of lizards, snakes, turtles and tortoises, as well as other animals, such as amphibians, spiders and insects.
ReptileCity.com, based out of Honey Grove, Texas, also sells cages, food and other reptile supplies. While awaiting sale, animals live in natural enclosures at a 20-acre ranch that includes ponds, trees and other foliage. The company's lizard collection includes geckos, iguanas, monitors and bearded dragons. The company offers discounts for pet stores.
ReptilesNCritters.com, based in Brooklyn, New York, provides overnight shipping and a live arrival guarantee for all animals, except for delivery to remote areas that requires two-day shipping.

BackwaterReptiles.com, based in California, Texas and Florida, sells alligators in addition to other reptiles, amphibians, tarantulas and scorpions. The company offers a live arrival guarantee on all shipments and ships to all states except Hawaii.
None of the companies ship internationally. The companies do not verify whether a given animal is legal to own in each state, leaving it up to potential customers to check state laws for owning exotic animals before purchasing.
