It's important to keep in mind that some things like size of container for the animal, box for shipping, and heating elements are all variable depending on from where you are shipping to where you are shipping, and what exactly you are shipping. ALWAYS check origin and destination weather, as well as your provider's website for any possible holds or warnings. The goal is for the animal(s) to arrive safely and in a timely manner and if that means waiting is best, then that truly is the best decision you can make. As you will see in the below walkthrough, we ship through Reptiles2You and will highly recommend their services to anyone. The customer service is unmatched. Plug over, time for the fun..
