: ...I didn't do my homework. I can't believe how ridiculous everyone is being. Actually I get a kick out of reading everyone's responses. In fact I was told Fed Ex will deliver live animals, by the shipper as well as an ill-informed rep. You don't know anything..and you can't say you did. I know what I dealt with..and I alone so thank you for your ignorance. I am not out to get anyone..just out to inform those customers who don't know the rules of shipping (since there is no law apparently). You can't blame a consumer for bad business...I don't care what your excuse is. I stand corrected about the Lacey Act. Thanks again!
Samia,
I believe you without a doubt. I personally have been told the same thing. Fortunately a friend informed me..that breeder I was dealing with was not being truthful. Some go so far as to tell customers they have a special account with Fed Ex or UPS for shipping snakes. Later I checked.
According to UPS officials NO shipper has special permission to ship snakes, geckos are OK.
