Does anyone know of an office for Airborne Express, FedEx or UPS anywhere in Central Florida that will accept shipments of snakes LABELED AS SNAKES, with the common and scientific name, etc? It seems that the regs of all of these carriers are fuzzy on the shipping of herps, and you get a different answer depending on who you talk to. I was at the Airborne office on Pineloch in Orlando today and they told me "absolutely NOT" as far as herps. I am a "known shipper" with Delta, but need to have an alternative (ie, something cheaper than $70). What are other breeders doing as far as shipping? Thanks for your response.
