Patrick C. Phillips WRITES:
Now I have another question.  Is it possible to mail worms in a frozen
state?  Is dry ice cold enough to keep them intact for overnight
delivery?  Has anyone tried this, or must one use a vat of liquid
nitrogen in the back of a U-Haul like they did when the CGC moved to
Minnesota (obviously not too useful for getting worms from England)?
Thanks in advance.
-----------------
Since the worms can be frozen and store just fine at -70c and
dry ice is -76c, it should absolutely work.
