i am sending my anole to new york from ohio and i need to know how to pack the box. how will the heat stay in if the anole needs air holes? or does it not need air holes? i am shipping it express mail and the post office says that the package will arrive next day. also can i get heat packs from petstores? are there alternatives to an animal heat pack. sorry for so many questions but i want the anole to have a safe trip. thanks so much.

i found a link that cleared everything up except where to get a heat pack. is it possible to get them from a pet store or are there substitutes for a reptile heat pack? its going to be in the 50's when i ship my anole and i really dont want to have to spend twenty dollars for a box of heat packs from the internet when i only need one. any suggestions? thanx much.

I have never seen a heat pack in a pet store, and the hand warmers from Wal-Mart are unacceptable since they onl ylast for about 8 hours.

If I'm not mistaken, several online dry goods suppliers sell them individually.
Check the sites for Scales, LLLReptile, or Superior Enterprise. All three of these sell shipping suppliesin their product lines, and you can proably buy a single heat pack from them.
