You do not want the "cheapest way" to ship an animal or animals. More importantly, you want the most secure and safest way for the animals. It is illegal to ship via the post office so don't even go there. The only shipper that knowingly ships reptiles is Delta Air Cargo. Some areas Airborn Express or Fed Ex will ship reptiles, you must ask. The important point here is these are LIVE ANIMALS! If you ship them with "fragile" and don't acknowledge what they are....they may go into an unpressurized air cargo hold and not make it alive. Please do care that these are live beings!!
