Your rep needs to read his own FedEx website:

"If approved by FedEx, we may accept non-venomous reptiles, amphibians, live/tropical fish and beneficial insects on an exception basis under the following conditions:

Shipments must be from a business to a business (from a breeder to a pet store, for example).
The shipper must have its packaging tested and pre-approved by FedEx Packaging Design and Development for the type of animal being shipped. Call 1.800.633.7019 for assistance. It is the responsibility of the shipper to adequately package shipments for all temperature extremes and handling conditions.

Contact your FedEx account executive for details and additional requirements."

Call that 1-800 number and ask to be connected to the package testing center. Say you want to send in a package for testing to be certified to ship live reptiles. I just did this and had no problems whatsoever. They showed me where to go on the internet to get the form to submit along with my box and start the process. It is legal.
