	I find the above statement a bit surprising. A long time ago, I
had occasion to ship some live butterflies from Alaska to Wisconsin, by
FedEx. It turned out that, provided the butterflies were well fed just
before shipping, there was no problem with in-shipment mortality even if
a few days were spent in transit.
