    Preparing Test Package

    I understand that while sending a test package to FedEx, you're supposed to prepare your box as you would when you ship, but do you have to put like a cold pack or a heat pack in it, or do you just put your filling and a snake back in the box and tape the box as you would if you were shipping an animal?

    No heat. Just bag and packing material.

    Make sure to remember a second Test Package Application on the INSIDE of your box.

    Correct you are. Was trying to play scrabble while posting and apparently I can't do 2 things at once.

    I'd put one of those snake in a peanut tin things in there for them. Or a plastic snake/lizard in there.

    Re: Preparing Test Package

    You can do it either way. I sent mine in during the cold months, and included a heat pack. No issues and everything came back fine. The main things they're checking for are the sturdiness of the boxes you're using, and the security of your pack job.

    Secure the bag as if there was a snake in it..
