::Usps is not going to kill your animals but it is illegal to ship them using usps.If you use it since it is cheapest method don't label them herp just write fragile and put the temps to keep them between.
::Like I said in the other forum, DO NOT ship through USPS. The idiots in the python forum have no idea what they are talking about, it is a FEDERAL OFFENCE. Why would someone ship this way when it is totally unnecessary? A door-to-door shipping company will work fine for you, just as it does for everyone else who buys/sells snakes over the internet. I'm sorry if this sounds mean, but I'm only trying to prevent you from committing a crime, unlike the geniuses in the python forum who suggested committing a federal offence.
:I ship via USPS mark the box live animals and tell them what it is. I have also contact USPS regarding this and was told what I was shipping was totally ok, i ship chameleons. I was told this on more than one occasion by more than one person at USPS.
This is for the person claiming it is legal to ship SNAKES through USPS, call them and ask if you can ship a SNAKE. And you will hear them say NO. Lizards are ok but NO snakes.
