    Hi All,

    Does anyone know what is happening with Herp Books based in Springfield QLD? I placed an order with them pre-Covid but have had no response to any of my emails or calls. I ended up having to get a refund through paypal.

    They’re gone mate, their hosted through a free site host which allows their site to stay up (I have a smfforums site been inactive for 12years, can still access it)

    I was going to get the scale and tails mags but then I remember another post like last year saying they had no response in a few weeks

    Bugger, thanks for letting me know. That's a disappointment, they carried a good range.

    I placed an order a few weeks ago, got a bit scared due to lack of communication and disconnected phone number, however the book arrived after a couple of weeks. Definitely still kicking.

    They have a very bad reputation and I wouldn't bother waiting for a response as they don't reply. I paid them for a book through Paypal, then disputed the payment and was eventually reimbursed.
    https://www.andrewisles.com/ or https://www.herpshop.com.au/ both provide great and reliable service.

    I am trying to find a copy of Carpet Pythons: Morelia bredli, Morelia carinata and the Morelia spilota complex by Marc Mense. Herp Books is the only place I can find that the book is not listed as sold out. I have had issues with them in the past but they may be my only option.

    Was there a return address on the package, I might try writing to them and see if they respond.
