Damn! I picked you a smaller on because I thought it would ship better. I'll send you another on Monday at my expense.

You said the water in the bag was 85 when you got him? Is it hot near you, or do you think the box and heat pack insulated too well?

yea its real hott, like 100+ i think the low last night was in the high 80's, the water temp when i opened the bag was 84, so i think a cold pack may be needed but im not sure. but i am also not sure of the temp of the the plane which fedex ships it through but the heat pack was still warm when i opened the box

I am experimenting with shipping. I hate doing it for reasons that appear in this thread :biggrin2:.
I wrote a lengthy article that will be published soon for an online magazine - and then also hosted on TONMO. Once it goes up, it will go on my site too, along with updates and additions.
I don't have many babies left, but hope to have eggs in 4-6 months.
