Take more than two steps between dribbles. Have I been watching too much basketball?How to travel with a tortoise
Thanks. Definitely don't need to worry about a sunny day.Take more than two steps between dribbles. Have I been watching too much basketball?
I traveled home from San Diego (13 hour drive) with a gold fish in plastic bag w/water and the bag in cooler once. He is still with me 2+ years later. If your pet will stay in the conditioned (heat or A/C) vehicle with you then the process is a lot easier on them as temperatures comfortable to humans aren't dangerous for tortoises for short term. It is if they have to sit in a vacant vehicle or warehouse (like when shipped) that you have double check your temperature controls. Just remember parked cars get over hot really quick on a sunny day.
Oh and make sure the box or cooler the pet is in a really secure position (on the floor, wedged between the seat). Use blankets, pillows, or other gear to make sure the container is sliding around or doesn't upset.
