Final result, She was never found though with how hot the floor was I'm pretty sure she was baked long before we ever even drove and hour, tried the red flashlight, dirt on the floor, overnight watching, nothing worked. I finally had to turn the truck in so I had to roll up the windows so that if she were still alive it would ensure she didn't survive the day so that there would be no risk of a bite to someone else and containment would be ensured. Butchers bill got a little higher as well given my OBT thats about 1/2" attempted to molt enroute and due to the fluctuating humidity between our old location and here she got stuck in molt, lasted 3 days before I finally called it given I saw no more signs of life and froze her to ensure her suffering would end if she still was alive, sucks given I've raised her from the size of a pea. Overall the rest of the Ts seem to be acclimating, alot of kicked hairs and some bare butts but theyre moving around thier enclosures again and eating. Unfortunatley in addition to the two Ts the load shifted in the mountains due to an emergency manuver and some boxes fell cracking up 3 of the acrylic habitats so a few are living in larger deli cups currently. All in all it could of been better, but also could of been alot worse so lesson learned if anyones thinking about it: Seal the box heavilly, pack as if shipping, and pray. I'm thinking in the future I might build a cradle to pack habitats into given also all habitats had thier tunnels collapsed by the time we arrived.
