    If you're talking about Fed Ex, Priority guarantees delivery by 10:30am to most areas while Standard is just by end of business day. Delivery should ONLY use Priority but Standard is fine if the animal is being held for pickup at the hub.

    Obviously you want to ship priority overnight.

    As far as signature remember that if they have their sig on file with fedex the package will be dropped off anyway.

    Everytime I have had anything shipped "priority" (to me) it arrives with all of the "standard" and "ground" stuff at 12:30ish. They don't make a special trip for priority, it all comes when the driver would be there anyway!

    Regardless of delivery time, it is actually against FedEx TOS to ship live reptiles anything OTHER THAN Priority Overnight.
