Rep: LottaLotls is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Shipping an Adult Axolotl

Hello!
I am relatively new to axolotls. I live in New Hampshire and I'm currently visiting family in Florida. I planned to purchase an axolotl from a seller in Florida. I don't think that the airline I'm flying would allow me to bring her on the plane, so my aunt said that she could ship her for me. I'm not quite sure how to go about the shipping process. I've heard that she should be shipped with an ice pack, but that's all I really know. I have a few questions.
What type of container should she be in?
Can I use regular overnight shipping as opposed to live animal shipping?
Should I fridge her before I ship her?
Is there any other information that I should know about shipping an axolotl?
If anyone could offer some insight I would appreciate it a lot. Thank you!

You can also consider the pet relocation services from Cargolution, if you're still interested.
