View Full Version : Packaging Reptiles

10-13-2004, 12:28 PM
I was wondering if someone could cover how to properly package reptiles for shipping. You know...Packaging for Dummies. Very basic instructions that a kid could understand. I just want to make sure I do it right and no harm happens to the animal because of my mistakes. I've never shipped and I'm a little worried about getting bashed on BOI if I do it wrong. I've read here and there about people using styrofoam etc. Doesn't that have to have holes in it. Is there an outer wrap or just a box? I have no clue. Please help. I'll be shipping snakes. Thanks for your input!

Many thanks to Clay for being so willing to share his knowledge. He is one of the people in this hobby that I truly respect and admire.
