Believe me when I say this: "You don't want to ship any animals of any kind through FedEx ground. I work at FedEx from 12 am to 6 am loading trucks and I know first hand what the boxes go through. They get smashed, kicked, jumped on, thrown across the docks, etc. Im not braging about it, nor am I am happy about it, but its the only way it can be done with the amount of time we have to load. So many boxes so little time to put them where they belong. So we resort to throughing some of them to where they belong. (are company is pretty fast though)So Please, dont ship your reptile friends through there. I have had good luck with airborn express in the past with all of my turtles.

: Airborne screwed me over and overcharged me $20 for shipping a package and no way on USPS. Should I use UPS or Fex Ex? UPS supposedly allows live animals now, but they seem more lax than most companies. I've heard Fed Ex runs is more efficient and on the ball. I've used each company only once, and from the one time...I was more happy w/ Fed Ex. What are your opinions?
