Shipping darts - Longest time frame ?

Postby Convertible » Fri Jul 01, 2011 9:56 am

Good morning (at least should be in central U.S.) Guys,

I stumbled across some topics in regards of shipping frogs via FedEx, or whatever else. In my experience shipping bird spiders, and Scolopendra was possible, I even had shipments from Hong Kong, and Malaysia which have been delivered to Hungary within 4 workdays. This is not a big issue for the above mentioned, but what about our beloved frogs? What is the average time when they are still doing fine, and not to risk a DOA shipment?

almost everyone shipps overnight here in the U.S

I, personally, would not feel good about 2 days or more.

Here is a US Importer / exporter that ships overseas :
