a good way to ship is to put your salamanders in a breathable bag and ship them in the regular fed ex mail. the bags give the newts the oxygen they need and as long as they dont need food they can be shipped for up to 10 days. you can buy the bags from novalex in the kordon section of their website.
will give better details if wanted.

This article: http://www.caudata.org/cc/articles/shipping.shtml has lots of great shipping information.

I've not used breathable bags myself but they sound like an interesting idea. You need to ensure the animals can't be squashed though.

I wouldn't bother with breather bags, except for animals with gills (larvae, axolotls, etc), which have to be shipped in water. Once they lose their gills, they just need to be shipped in damp toweling or moss (or even wet styrofoam peanuts) - you can poke holes in the plastic container for air. Ship this in a cardboard box (which "breathes" quite well on its own).

Thank you for the info guys. I buy crickets all the time so I could just use those containers. I also have a ton of sphagnum moss so all I need now are good homes for my little ones to go too.

Thanks again

All my little newts have been given to good homes now. My adults are still laying eggs and I seen a couple of larvae in my adult tank, but the majority of eggs are being eaten by a rogue newt and I have not been taking the eggs out, as they really are alot of work to keep alive and healthy. Finding homes for them is trying also as I will not just give them to anybody.
