What are transport boxes?
Transport boxes are small enclosures designed to hold reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates while they are transported to and from a permanent enclosure. Each box is made from transparent material, like plastics or perspex and has a ventilated canopy - providing a steady stream of air into the enclosure. Some transport boxes can be used as permanent enclosures for invertebrates like millipedes and tarantulas.
Why should I buy transport boxes?
If you own a reptile, amphibian or invertebrate you will need a transport box. Transport boxes are used to pick up your pet when you adopt it and are necessary for trips to the vets. Most transport boxes are quite cheap and durable, so you rarely need more than a couple no matter how many animals you own.
What are the main types of transport boxes?
The biggest differentiator in transport boxes is the size of the box. While you don’t need to worry too much about space as this is just a temporary enclosure, you still need to ensure your pet will comfortably fit in the box. The bigger the animal the bigger the transport box you’ll need.
What should I look for?
Once you’ve found a transport box of appropriate size, the only other thing to think about is what other transport products you need. Most animals will need a transport heat pack and some will also need a snake travel bag to be transported with minimal stress.
