Has anyone tried to fly recently with RES? I have 6 RES I need to transport from NJ to FL. They range in size from 4-7". Airlines do not allow them in cabin. However I have had several people "suggest" I should simply try to carry them on in my carry on. Obviously there are risks to that approach, such as having them confiscated for one. Has anyone tried this recently (last 6 months) and does anyone have a suggestion as to how to get them to FL? Txs!

Flying with RES and other reptiles is pretty much impossible. If caught, not only will they be confiscated but also destroyed. It can also reach freezing temps in the cargo hold, so there is that risk too.

You can try a delivery service, though you might run into issues as well since Florida has strict rules on RES.
