I used to work for a company that sold fish, snails, and pond plants, and we always sent them through the mail in bags full of oxygen. What's the problem with that?

I don't know the laws regarding trusting your animals with the Royal Mail but the site says

Couriers contacted the RSPCA after discovering the animals and were unaware of what they were delivering because of poor labelling.

They were arrested in March 2011 after an investigation from RSPCA and Dartford council.

A search at the property in May by the RSPCA also discovered Siamese fighting fish kept in small bags without fresh water which an expert vet said would cause them to suffer.
and The court heard the animals were placed in packages with water with labels stating 'fragile’ on the boxes. One courier discovered a bag of water containing axolotls had burst.

Andrew Wiles, prosecuting on behalf of the RSPCA, said none of the animals had died as a result of being in packages - but they would have suffered.
