    Box Size

    I'm going to be shipping 2 balls next week. One is about 700 grams and the other is about 750. What box size do you all reccomend? Thanks!

    The smallest sized insulated box that will allow both of them floor space. You don't want the box so big that they're sliding around inside, but you don't want it so small that they're laying on top of each other.

    Use a lot of void fill, (balled up newspaper, enough so that they can't slide around and it should feel just a little tight) and probably in this weather a cold pack taped to the inside of the lid

    Also use secure clean bags, securely tied shut (or just use an old pair of socks... (I'm just kidding...))

    Check out this URL for a lot of good information. - http://www.shipyourreptiles.com/en/g...s/#question-18

    Probably 15x11x7. That would be what I would use.

    Yes, the 15x11x7 is probably your best choice. The next size down at 12x9x7 is probably going to be too cramped for both of them.
