I am new to all of this, and was wondering how I can ship my tree frog. Which place do I use, and how do I set up the box so that the frog makes it there alive. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

I ship dart frogs and this is what I do. I use FedEx Priority Overnight by 10:30 am. I put each frog individually in their own 16 oz. deli container. In the container I have fake moss that is misted down and the entire inside of the container is misted down as well. I use no air airholes. I tape the lid shut. Once the containers are set, I find a good corrugated box, insulate it as best as possible, use bubble wrap and newspapers and pack it all in really tight so there's not too much wiggle room. In temps now, I usually place 1 frozen water bottle to help keep temps cool. I've shipped my dart frogs successfully this way...hope it helps.
