Official USPS shipping policies for live animals

For anyone interested, I've found the official USPS policies for shipping reptiles, and any live animal, for that matter.

The policies for shipping 'Small Cold-blooded Animals' is section C022.3.2 of the USPS DMM (Domestic Mail Manual). (Section C022 is for all 'Perishables' and sub-section 3.0 for 'Live Animals' and sub-sub-section 3.2 for 'Small Cold-blooded Animals'.)

You can view these policies online by using the USPS Postal Explorer, website http://pe.usps.gov/ and search for "C022.3.2". This will take you right to this section.

I hope this helps anyone with questions regarding USPS official policy, cause it sure helped me!
