Animals cannot be express mailed in the U.S. They must be shipped by air,
and the airlines are tightening up their requirements (thank God!). So it
might not be as convenient to ship him as you think.

I have one 4 month old captive bred Blue Tongue Skink for sale. I am
asking $100 (US$). Although I live in Montreal, I can easily drive to
Vermont and Express Mail it to someone in the U.S. The lizard is in
excellent shape. Unfortunately, I do not have enough room in my
collection for it.

which is Tiliqua gigas as I recall)

You are incorrect. Lizards may be Express Mailed, while snakes and
turtles may not. Just check any reptile mail order price list. In
addition, I have received lizards through express mail when I lived
in California, and it did not seem to have any negative effect on
them.

The previous poster mentioned that animals could not be express mailed
in the US, but this is not true. received a trio of Timor monitors in
the mail. They were mailed post office to post office, so I just picked
them up at my local post office. I think the post office has rules
against mailing snakes, but lizards are OK.

It seems that his original intentions about selling his blue tongues has
been redirected in comments about mailing rules. Anyway it seems Scott
Hamilton(?) is in Canada, Montreal to be exact and his E-mail address is
from Mcgill university. So Scott why don't you offer your skinks to your
Canadian Neighbours? Theres lots of Herpetologists up here and I'm sure
you'd be able to get 150cdn for your animal locally. or even from as far
as Toronto. Have you tried the Reptile Breeding Foundation or even any of
the local herp clubs? (or is the point that your heading to the States
anyway?) well just my .02 cents (I'm nearby in Ottawa)
btw have you tried asking Mirdo, Reptile-direct or even the port credit
pet centre if they're interested? Good Luck;)
