Hey!!! I’m completely new here and tomorrow I’m getting my first baby boy! Well, he’s not so much a baby anymore, he’s a year old, but I’m getting him from a very caring couple who don’t have time anymore due to their new circumstances. I’ve done research over the past seven months(ever since ive wanted one) and even more specific research in the past three weeks. He is a little panther boy(I will paste a photo they have sent me) and I’m very excited to house this guy One problem, is that he is a two hour drive up north from my house. I live in Ontario in the Hamilton area and recently it’s been quite snowy, and dry and very cold. As a panther, I know his heat needs and I know his humidity needs and that a lot of people have done much longer trips. I have read a ton of stuff, but I would like to know more specifically for me how I can make the stress for him as less as I can in my power. My plan, is to get a cardboard box where he cannot see out of, line the bottom with a towel, possibly put a wet plant in the corner for humidity?(but I don’t know if thats the best idea), put one of his brances in it so that he has something to hold onto if he needs, towels on the sides so he cant hurt himself or shake around too much ect. My main question here, is should I use a heat pack? I hope he ends up falling asleep during the ride, and before we leave I’m going to let him sit in the box in a quiet room for a half hour, but for health sake should I use one just to be safe? The car will be warm of course but no one has really said anything about a heat or cooling pack unless the cham is being shipped. I just want to make sure I make this as comfortable as I possibly can, and I am open to do anything to help him! Thank you so much for any feedback also, in one of those photos hes directly under his light? he seems to not have any burns and im definitely going to change the position of thay vine so its not as close, but I want to know if anyone can see anything out of the ordinary? thanks again!!
