How to ship live animals - USPS

This is from the USPS site. I wonder how much it would cost to ship a hippo


You'll need:

1,000-gallon tank per hippo
1,000 gallons of water
1-pound sedative
Soothing hippo music
2 Aspirin (for you)

How to pack:

1. Fill your tank with 800 gallons of water. Start yesterday. Remember, a medium-sized hippo takes up at least 200 gallons. (Just out of curiosity, why do you have a hippo, anyway?)

2. Apply sedative. Take two Aspirin.

3. Hold it, hold it - put the hippo in the tank, first. Start with soothing hippo music, followed by a large winch and crane.

4. Now go relax in a hot bath before the forklift arrives.
