    Just got this from SYR

    Hi there,

    Due to some irresponsible shippers, UPS has directed our customers to temporarily stop shipping snakes with ShipYourReptiles.com.

    We are working hard to reinstate safe snake shipping for our customers and the entire reptile community.

    Other types of UPS-approved non-venomous reptiles including geckos, lizards and turtles may be shipped with ShipYourReptiles.com.

    To make your shipments easy, we recommend you drop off your packages at a Staples or Office Depot shipping counter.

    We will keep you updated on this matter.

    Thanks for your patience and support,

    -- Robyn and the ShipYourReptiles.com team

    People just can't seem to follow the rules.. Now they can pay for Fed-Ex..

    Glad I already have my Fedex stuff in the works. They have my test package as we speak.

    I saw the e-mail too and its somehow never any surprise how badly a few bad people can screw stuff up for the rest of us. Hopefully they get this resolved sooner than later.

    Does anyone know exactly what's going on? When shipping of snakes may resume?

    Re: Just got this from SYR

    There's a post over on KS about it....

    There seems to be confusion about how the whole SYR is supposed to work.

    But I DO know there's a lot of dumb people out there that have shipped stuff sub-par through SYR, which is a no-no.

    I've had an animal shipped to me in a duct taped banana box through SYR.....

    If your asking if this is a bad thing it depends. SYR was a way for people that maybe only needed to ship one or two snakes a year to do so with out going through the Fed-Ex process. They were able to get bigger discounts and it really helped allot of people out.

    It's always the few that mess it up for the majority..
