BioVivara's 30 Day "Love It" Guarantee for Vivariums/Enclosures

We are so confident you will love your new vivarium that, if you order a vivarium from us and you aren't happy with your purchase anytime in the first 30 days, you can return it for a full refund minus shipping fees. It is a joy to create amazing enclosures that others will love. If you don’t love it, we want to help – whether that means helping you return your product or whether that means helping you with whatever is holding you back from enjoying it.

30 Day "Love It" Guarantee Return Details:
If, at any time during the first 30 days after you receive your vivarium, you feel it isn't delivering on our promises for how it works, how it looks, or you just aren't happy with it, call 877-524-5979 or e-mail us at
