    Heat pack? Cold pack? No pack?

    Okay, this Tuesday I will be shipping out my first ever snake, and I am scared as hell. I'm shipping from Carmel Ca to Shrewsbury MA. I'm on the fence about what to use because in Carmel, Tuesday has a high of 75 and a low of 61, whereas Shrewsbury has a high of 90 and a low of 66. I will be using SYR as well as one of their shipping kits. I am leaning toward no pack, but maybe a slightly cold one would be good. Thoughts? Please reassure me!

    Ship to a hub, and skip the cold pack. The BP should never see the high temp at destination that way.

    Are you shipping hub to hub, or can you? I prefer shipping hub to hub. You know the snake is never left outside that way, and you don't have to stress so much about the temps.

    Ship without any packs, those temps are fine.

    It's pretty hot out, I would say, no pack.
