You can get 24 hour heat packs. They typically cost a couple dollars. You will also need a cloth bag or a pillowcase to place the snake in, and a rubbermaid box with air holes.

Place the snake in the cloth bag/pillowcase, place the pillowcase in the rubbermaid, and finally put the heat pack in the rubbermaid. Since you are using public transit, you may need to "live animal" labels.

Hope this helps.

go to a hunting suply place they will have the mini heat pads that you put in your pockets to keep your hands warm they last 8-12 hours if i remember correctly.

now keep your mouth shout when it comes to the coach cause they don't want any animals on board.

I travelled a house gecko in the dead of winter I hade him in my inside pocket with 2 fresh pads every 6 hours and i checked on him every 2 hours that means alot of trips to the rest room hehe.

any way dont sweat it too much keep the snake warm and out of the public eye and it should go smouthly.
