I have received shipments via Delta Dash before. I received my shipment at Baltimore Washington International and when I picked them up I showed my I.D. I also had the shipping information from the shipper. The folks at the Delta counter were curious as the package was marked "live non venomous reptiles" and I wanted to check on the condition of my animals so I opened the package. All was o.k. This is the proper way to ship animals although I have received in other ways.
