I talked to USPS about shipping live reptiles. There first response was "that's illegal" than they transfered me to another department. i assured them it was legal.
Than they told me they couldn't guarantee express overnight delivery because of Fedex's policies.
So what's the deal.
I can either ship them unmarked and have them arrive the next day or I can ship them labeled clearly and hope they make it to there destination before the heat pack runs out in 2-3 days.
Not to mention my local post office won't even except the package if it is labeled, I would have to drive an hour out to a "hub".
Anyone have problems shipping unlabeled animals in the past?
I think the package probably gets beaten around regardless of rather its labeled correctly.
anyone want to comment. what am I supposed to do?
