I use the foam coolers petstores use to ship fish, they are very stroung and hold in heat and keep the cold out. I usaly put a few vents and cover them up screen and ducktape it back, I then find a box for it to fit nice and right in, stuff some newspaper around, put some heat packs in (only if its cold, make sure they dont contact the animal) and slap the "live harmless lizzard" logo on it. beleave me, all ways mark the boxs, I bought a baby gator once and it came on a saterday, will I live in the middle of know were and they dont ship to were im at on saterdays, will UPS was going to put it in there warehouse till and delever it the coming monday, but some how one of the drivers saw the sticker and called me at 6 in the morning and I met him. If that was note rote on the box it would have froze to death in the warehouse! Well good luck!
