Sure.  No problem.  If they can survive several days in the mail, they can 
survive 12 hours on the road.  Be sure to use a styro, and if the day is as 
warm as most have been lately, you may want to drop a couple of ice cubes in 
there now and then.  Remember, as temperature goes up, metabolism goes up and 
dissolved oxygen goes down.
