    Very Happy.

    Given the description online it looks like the amount of toes, as well as whether or not it has a tail will vary. I however got a very beefy and healthy boy with all his toes and a tail that looks to be full. Even if he had some damage though I'd still recommend especially for the price.

    So Impressed!

    LOVED the experience I had with Snakes at Sunset. My guy came in healthy and happy. He was easy to handle, and I’d have never known he was wild caught. Not to mention, he’s gorgeous and obviously well cared for. I’ll be ordering again soon!

    Best lizard!

    I am so amazed with how healthy and well socialized my lizard was. She let me pick her up and hold her and she’s not skiddish be what so ever. I bought a fire skink from a pet store and it runs and will not let me pick it up without it biting. So the difference is outstanding. I will be ordering from here from now on! Thank you snakes at sunset!

    What a CHUNGUS

    What a beefy lad they sent me! Hes was perfect except for missing all of his toes but I attribute that to him being wildcaught.

    Fire Skink

    She is super healthy and came in super healthy. I’ve had her for almost a year now! I have already referred a couple friends to this site.

    African fire skink

    I was a bit nervous about buying this animal since it was wild caught, I know WC’s can be unhealthy and severely stressed. Well they must have some kind of decent quarantine or rest period because this animal I purchased was very healthy, robust and alert, the skunk arrived in a good package with care taken for its particular high humidity needs. She fed the first day and snakes at sunset communicated promptly and efficiently about shipping the package arrived exactly when it was supposed to. Thumbs up on these guys I will definitely be buying from you again!

    Beautiful and Healthy

    Received very quickly, which was awesome. Tried to order a fire skink from a different website at first, it not only took the other website almost 3 days to arrive even though I paid extra for overnight shipping, but the skink was dead upon arrival due to there not being any way for it to breath and the container it was shipped in was cruel. There wasn't even a sticker on the side that said fragile or perishable or anything! However, from Snakes at Sunset, it arrived within less than 24 hours and was in a much more humane containment. The skink was alive and healthy and very active/attentive. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking to purchase.
