What type of heat packs should I use for shipping a tarantula?
I purchased some 20 hr packs last night at a local sporting goods store, but they say they activate when exposed to oxygen. Are these the right packs, or will they use all the oxygen in the container? Is there another type I should look for?
Thanks!
Ralph

I use the ones called 'UniHeat'
I purchased them in a 10 pack from John Hoke's website.
I think it was $16 for 10 packs, including shipping.
And they are 40 hour ones, specifically made for shipping live critters.

Heat Packs

A definate MUST for any winter shipping.

I purchase mine from Superior Enterprises in bulk along with my deli cups. (great source!)

You can also purchase heat packs direct from the source at: www.ridtheheatsource.com.
