Items USPS Won't Mail in Colorado

As you can imagine, the postal service would appreciate keeping anything flammable far away from the post office. They don't like delivering spoiled fruit baskets, cash, dead animals, or parts of dead animals. Not only are there banned items to be aware of, but hundreds of items include restrictions that require special packaging.

Colorado Needs A Critter Delivery Service

The USPS list of items banned from being mailed in Colorado includes several animals. While you can't mail kittens, puppies, rabbits, or snakes, the USPS will deliver live bees, scorpions, and some live adult birds under a specified size.

Find Options Elsewhere

Just because you can't get the USPS to deliver something doesn't mean you are out of options. Just because the post office won't mail your fireworks off to your cousin doesn't mean that FedEx or UPS will not.
