Could you please describe the process for us?

Also, I am a bit confused as to why a person would want to get certified, and tell the shipper what's in the box? My experience has been that most people are afraid of, or harbor some hatered for snakes. Once I place that package in their care, I do not wish to attract any extra attention to it. I want them to handle it like any other package. I can just see some fearful or hateful person kicking the box accross the tarmac, or leaving it in the sun, just because they don't like snakes. And if it wer'nt labeled as such, they'd never know. As far as I'm concerned, they just need to deliver that package to it's destination as planned, and paid for,...and mind their own business.

On a side note, I have learned through many years of eating at the drive through window, that my best bet is to get the pre-designed value meal, without any changes, without anything special, without any requests. Any time I try to "have it my way", I change what they are used to, and my chances of them screwing up my order go up, exponentialy!

As far as I'm concerned, the spirit of the law, with regard to the Lacey Act, is to let the shipper know when they are dealing with anything potentially dangerous or hazardous. I don't ship hots, or anything that could hurt anyone, so what's the deal? If they kill it during transport, they won't pay for it anyway, right? Have I missed something? I don't get it. Seems to me the best way to ship a harmless animal, is quietly and covertly. I don't have plans to get "certified" unless I start breeding hots.
