Rebecca, I don't live in Vancouver so I will be no help on where to go. But, you can't bring reptiles in the passenger area so they must go under the plane. That cargo charge will be at least 50 dollars and up depending on how far you are going. It's really stupid but I don't think the old lady behind you would feel to comforitable if she knew you had a lizard underneath the seat in front of you. Through the carry on bag they would see his skeleton on the bag screener. Have fun.
