Usps treats “live animals” differently from the rest of the packages. Live animals get special labeling on transport containers, and segregated from the rest of the mail. They moved to safer & warmer locations in the warehouses between relay destinations.

Fun fact: usps is the only organization in the us allowed to ship live animals and cremated remains via package/mail.
