I've had leopard geckos shipped by aircanada twice and each time, there was a problem so I switched to westjet. They don't insure but shipping has never been so easy, or cheap, before! I honestly would prefer not to have anything shipped by AC and I was VERY impressed with how WestJet shipped my little Stitch. We got there, signed some papers, picked up the box and left with the healthiest baby leo ever! I like WestJet. What can I say? I just do.
