    FWIW there are 72hr heat packs available. I use these exclusively

    the 72 hour heat packs are the best! Also, make sure NOT TO FEED them within 48 hours before shipping, and make sure they are hydrated before packing. It is always stressful for the snake, but all we can do is keep them as healthy as possible during their hellish imprisonment travels.

    Winter shipping is fine so long as packaging standards and temperature guidelines are followed during regular shipping times (ie: Not during the Christmas crush or a massive blizzard sweeping across the Midwest). You can expect live arrival.

    We also love the 72 hour heat packs. If a package gets delayed along the way, you have that extra confidence of slow, steady warmth in the box.

    Of course, the holiday crush of packages is just around the corner. Our last day of shipping with On-Time and Live Arrival Insurance available is December 4th. After that date, the chances of delayed shipments begins to rapidly escalate. After the New Year, things will return to the regular winter shipping standards.

    Don't hesitate to call or write to us if you have any questions about safe winter shipping!
