Shipping animals other than through air freight is illegal. I recommend that you read the above terms of the law and see that it is not only for wild caught animals, but also born in captivity, and bred in captivity. Everyone's excuse is cost, time, paperwork. What that tells me is that one is willing to risk the life of the shipped animal as well as cost the customer their time and cause problems for them. Lazy shippers who can't fill out paperwork or find a legal way to ship are just screwing their customers. I am sure some animals make it fine. That doesn't make it okay. I had a not so great experience yesterday that tells me the time and money you spend is every bit worth it.
