    I hear (read) people recommend wait a week after molting to feed so fangs can harden. Probably the same for shipping, I wouldn't want a T with any soft parts to get shaken up.

    It'll be two weeks before it can eat again, and it should have a couple good meals before shipping. No point in rushing it and having a DOA.

  6. I would wait 2 weeks so that way you know it's all hardened up and got a meal, but hey I've received a few slings who have molted during shipping and had no issue whatsoever.
