    I ship snails and shrimp in a bit of java fern, in a double zip bag, a small amount of water and then in a small shipping box. However, depending on where you live, this is not a good time for shipping North if you're in the US.

    Very true it is so cold here;( -30C here today! And Ups trucks unfortunately are not heated. My Lfs in the winter has to drive to the airport 2 hours away just to get their fish, instead of getting them delivered.
