    If I were you I would try for an 80 degree day. 89 degrees is a bit high, but then again, 69 degrees is pretty low. I would think you would be fine, but you should also ask the seller what they think and what their guarantees are.

    The highs in the day will be in the afternoon of the day you recieve him. If the seller ships at around 4 or 5 in the evening the snake will be fine throughout the night and then into the morning. Just make sure your there to grab the package.

    Depends on the kind of snake if its a ball python 89 is just fine.. IMHO its well with in the range of temp that they are kept at all the time in their tubs..

    Just a note. We have shipped Ball Pythons in temps that range from 25 to 98 degrees, and had them arrive safely every time. As long as it is packaged properly, the temps you will experience are well within the ideal that I like to ship in.

    I agree. Unless its super cold (less than 30 degrees or so) or super hot (greater than 95) then it should be just fine. The key is to make sure to use a properly sized and insulated box and a heat/cold pack as necessary.
