Leliia is beautiful! IMHO that dragon has NOTHING on your girl.
Unfortunately, even if a Canadian were to purchase her for you, you'd still need an import/export license to ship them across the border. I remember one of my friends had to literally HIDE her cat in the trunk for a few minutes while her family was crossing the border to visit more family.
The only thing I can possibly recommend is if you somehow manage to get a legal trans-shipper to buy her for you, then ship it to your local trans-shipper, who will get it to you.
Heh, thanks for that compliment. Honestly I think the girl selling the betta couldn't get a good picture of the female. The picture I showed here is one out of literally 350+ pictures I took that actually has her beautiful colors right. The other 350+... her scales looked like an ugly green or brown. :P It took forever to figure out the right lighting.
I also figured the whole transhipper thing was the problem, but I didn't exactly know how that all worked.
I'll contact a few Canadian transhippers for help on this and see if they will lend a hand.
Aw, I wish I could help. I'm so far East that she'd suffer and die before she got to you :( I wonder if you could drive somewhere closer to Canada and work a deal with the seller?
Shoot, it'd literally take me a full two days drive to get near the Canadian border. I live in the furthest-South state in the continental US. xD;
I'm going to contact the seller about shipping/selling her to a transhipper, so I can buy her off the transhipper and ship her here.... So many steps I'm willing to take for this one fish. lol
I'm sorry, if I did this, she'd be added to my sorority!
I wouldn't blame you! :D
Though I might be a little mad at you, if you did, too.
