A reader asks –
“I plan in the future to begin rearing and supplying amphibian and reptile. as i though of all the things i need, i am stuck of thinking how to send the stocks to overseas?
as now i am currently living in Malaysia and i need your help as in general or specific info will do.
i have interest in this industries as determine by my interest rather than by making money.
i hope that all of you out there with experience, knowledge and kindness please help me cause this is very important to my dream work. i am reptile and amphibian lover like you all. thanks alot for the info you share.
so, means that i cant even bread the reptile as well? cause i plan to bring it to international market. or is there any suggestion or advise to be a reptile and amphibian supplier? any advise will be considerable, thank you.”
Shipping reptiles and amphibians anywhere can be VERY expensive. Just with sending any live animal, you can never guarantee they will arrive at their destination alive and in good health. Plus many companies like UPS and FedEx really don't like shipping them for just anybody. My best friends husband owns a reptile store in California and still has a hard time getting live animals shipped to him through various companies.
Your best bet would be to contact the carrier you wish to use and find if they would even ship them for you and what their requirements and fees are.
