Please, if you could help me out id GREATLY GREATLY appreciate it.! Thank you in advance

Have you considered the possibility of having a friend send your animals by air cargo once you have arrived in Arizona? Since you are keeping the cages, this is one option, provided they are not restricted to posess or import species.

I havent. But I dont want to open the boxes to a p/o'ed snake or lizard. If they mite be stressed out, even if the chances are SMALL id wish them to have a home where they wont go thru shipping.

They will be pissed off and stressed out anyway if you drove and took them all.

Country:
Being shipped, whether through air cargo or via ground travel, will cause stress. I wouldn't base my decision on what I was keeping based on that. Moving is moving, regardless of whether its in a box on thr groun or in a box in the air Scales Zoo suggestion is a good one, and I would do opt for that one as well.

most of what you have, except for the fish, should transport just fine in styrofoam containers. fill some soda bottles with water and freeze them to carry just in case you need to cool things down some. Be sure to get a non-game hunting permit when you get to Az, your going to have a blast field herping

department of game and fish probably, but it is just a non-game hunting permit, get it after your driver's liscense and your probably a resident, get the liscense at wal-mart/k-mart

Snakeman87 I am moving next month and i am bringing every thing.

Just take a boxe line it with styrofome and but shreded news paper init and place the snake in a bag and place it in the box.

Like it was stated above just bring some frozen bottled water in case it gets hot one the way up I would put some thermomaters in the box's with the animals.

when you have your room pick't out then put them all in the one room and set up the cages first place them in the cages and treat them like new arrivels dont worry about a thing you will be to buissy seting things up in your room that when it is all said and done the animals will be back to normal in a few weeks give the ball a bit longer but you get the idea.

We moved last winter, we only moved 3 hours away but because of the extream temperatures out side we still had to be careful.

We had 3 boa's, 3 ball pythons, 2 burms, 3 corn snakes and 1 king snake to move when we moved. what we did was took 3 coolers put heat pads in each cooler (we have a stat power unit for providing electricity). Then we put the different boids in snake bags and put the boa's in 1 cooler, the ball pythons in the next cooler and the burms in the last cooler. Then we put the colubrids in hard plastic containers with air holes to protect them from being squished by the larger boids. We put those in the various cooler's too, with the king snake in a different cooler then the corns. By doing this we managed to keep the various snakes seperated from cross species contamination.
The heat pads kept the temperatures warm enough for the snakes, you'll probably want to use frozen water bottles (insulate them, you don't wanna freeze the snakes!!!) to keep the temps cool enough for them. We also tossed a cheap temp gauge in each cooler so we could keep an eye on the temps as well, you don't want to cook your snakes.

Do not feed the snakes for a week before traveling, you don't want to have regurges.

The packing process went like this; we packed everything except the snake tanks. then we packed up the snakes and their cages. the cages were first to be unloaded and we had one person partially set up the cages while everyone else continued to unload (took about 10 minutes as we didn't set up the shelves or anything till later).
