Default Anyone buy eggs from WET N' WILD(Slimer)?

Hey I just wanted to ask if anyone has bought any eggs from Slimer? Because I already payed him, and no eggs so far. I keep sending him messages if he sent them already, but no answer. I don't want the babies to hatch by the time he sent them because that's harmful to their health. So I'm hoping they come in, but just asking if anyone bought some eggs from him and actually got them in some time, because I'm getting anxious, and think I may have gotten scammed.

Hi. Since you're in Canada, I believe it's illegal to send perishable material across the border without special permits, etc. I haven't purchased anything from slimer.

I don't know much on the subject other than I won't ship internationally or to states where axolotls are illegal. You probably should have made sure he had a way to send them to Canada before you purchased. Hope you get ahold of him to sort it out.

When did you order? His first batch hatched shortly after his posting and he was unable to ship those. They laid a second batch shortly after, which I ordered some from and they got here and hatched out yesterday! I bet the issue is shipping to CAN which does require a lot of permits and would require a lot of work on both ends as they're CITES listed and international shipping is HIGHLY regulated.

I ordered one from the batch that he posted like a week ago, but nothing came. And also I keep sending him private messages saying "Did you send them?" but he never answers me. So I don't know what to think. Now I ordered 10, and I already payed, so I don't know, but even if it is because they are protected by CITES, he should have told me if he does not have a permit or not because that way I would've understood.

Axolotls cannot be shipped internationally without a LOT of (very expensive) paperwork.

Depending how you paid the seller, try using legal recourse to recover your money. If you used paypal, you can file a dispute with them and try to recoup your loss. If you didn't use paypal, I suggest doing so from here on out. It's one of the best ways to safeguard your money when making purchases online.

Did you send him your address before you paid? I'd hope sellers would know that international shipping is pretty impossible w/o a lot of leg work and money. If you used paypal, open up a dispute and hopefully that will resolve it. He hasn't been on this site in several days so perhaps that is another reason why you haven't heard from him. I'd also email him if you have his direct email.

I would still dispute it in paypal. It may only be $25, but he should at least be responding to your emails. Definitely email him with regular email if you haven't already. Paypal is pretty good about getting the money back for you in such cases. This site has many many posts about the legality of international shipping as well as the few states where its illegal to own them, so it doesn't seem likely that he wouldn't be aware of it.

Exactly what I was thinking, so that's why I didn't ask, because I saw that he joined such a long time ago, and there is so many legality posts on this great site, so I don't know. I emailed him now. I've got to wait for his response. By the way, I forgot to say that I have two happy and healthy wild type axolotls that I got from Big Als in Hamilton.

We have recently received two complaints regarding this individual. If you get no resolution to your problem in the next few days, please post again and I will permanently ban the person in question from this web site. Thank you to Kaysie for bring this to my attention again.

I actually saw that after I ordered as well, which is why I'm glad I ordered through paypal just in case. But the eggs I ordered from him did arrive and are doing fabulous. My only complaint was his slow response to emails, especially when my tracking number wasn't coming up and I never heard back about that(but they've arrived, so I wasn't going to push the issue).

I'll definetly let you know, John. And by the way, I recently got a REPTILES magazine and it said the pics were taken by John P. Clare so I'm wondering if those were by you, and if so, I LOVE YOU. xD Your pics were so adorable :) By the way, I just found out he has more than a couple emails. His email he gave me was: time.for.some.action@hotmail.com but there is 2 more I found on the post that axolotlfriend showed me blueflamessuck@hotmail.com, snakeface1979@hotmail.com so I guess he does scam considering he has so many emails and what else could they be used for right?

Hope you get your refund if not the eggs! Its not a large amount of money but it's the principle of it all. I've contacted some pet shops around the Toronto area to see if they are carrying or will be carrying axolotls in the near future. Will keep you posted as I know you want to add more to the group :)
