I am wondering where I can find 18 hour heat packs (Locally) and would also like to hear of others with there shipping experiences for Dart Frogs. As far as stuff like packaging, insulation used, stuff like that.
Thanks in advance.
Depending on where you are shipping, how old it is I would insulate them with a small styro box and put a couple heat packs ont he outside. They put all that in another styrobox.
IMO it takes only one heat pack in a box, sometimes that is overkill. I have used the boxes I got from patrick, when I've got frogs. But recently I have been using 9 x 9 x9 boxes, I cut foam to insulate the box, I make a rough cut, then straighten it out with my wonder cutter. If theese directions are too short let me know, I broke a finger today and it is pretty hard too type.
I have used fedex, ups, usps, and airborne. I have had god luck with all of them, but most people hate usps, so if you use one of the other three you should be fine, but dont tell them their are animals in the box, just label it fragile, keep from temperature extremes.
