Special Notes

Prices for in-house breeding colony animals equal 60% of commercial price from vendor. 

*No in-house rat breeding colony. Excess sentinel pups may be available.

Equipment including tanks for alligators, frogs, toads, turtles, fish, etc, must be furnished by the investigator. 

All charges for large animals are based on one animal per stall. If multiple animals are housed in a single stall, DLAM reserves the right to charge a stall charge per animal. 

A room charge rate will be instituted when the accumulation of per diem charges is less than the actual room charge rate.
