Disreguard my previous statement. I had forgotten about the "lacey act" which states that all interstate transport of live reptiles must be labeled with quantity, common name, and scientific
name. A few do this but most dont. Those who dont
therefor would be shipping illeagally.
: are not breaking the law unless its shipped through the usps. Otherwise they are just violating ups, fed-ex, and airbornes shipping policies, not the law. Some do have permission from some of these shippers to ship snakes though.
: It kinda depends on the manager of the area where
: they are being shipped from to decide.
: God Bless
: : : because of all the restrictions with snakes, many dealers/breeders use door to door shippers but just dont label the box. if you dont want to pay an arm and a leg to get a snake shipped to you, you have to be less than forthcoming.
: : :
: : : : I am totally confused. I am reading and re-reading posts, and reading Classified ads for snakes. What I am reading is confusing ----- Either snakes can or can not be shipped. Why are some dealers stating they can only ship to major airports due to restrictions by delivery carriers (UPS, USPS, etc), and oather dealers stating they ship Door-to-Door?
: : : : How is this possible? Door-to-Door using WHAT carrier??? Can someone please clarify this for me...
: : Ok, so than any dealer who says they can ship me a snake to my front doorstep is essentially breaking the law, right? And there is the possibility that the packaged snake may not arrive at all.....
: : Right?
