Rep: greenwood09 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default When is it too hot to ship newts overnight delivery?

I was interested in purchasing some newts but I am afraid even with overnight delivery it would be too hot. I live in the north east and the rest of the week will be hot and humid in the nineties I am worried also about using usps overnight service I have used them before and overnight delivery turned into 2-3 days. What is the maximum safest temperature for shipping amphibians. Any advice or help would be appreciated.

It's probably too hot right now. Take in to account not only the temperatures at your end, but also at the seller's end and the hub.
Here are the Ship Your Reptiles guidelines:

Scroll down to #14.

The ship your reptile guidelines are mostly for reptiles. It is almost never appropriate to throw a heat pack in a salamander shipment. I normally don't ship much over 90F and use ice packs and a styro. I don't ship if day and nite time temps are much below freezing.
