Wrap the snake in saran wrap, surround it by whiffle balls, which are in turn surrounded by bubble wrap, and then more bubble wrap, which you surround by freezer pack. Then put more bubblewrap until there is enough to fit into a refrigerator box.
K, maybe not. The snake may not make it but I love to play with bubblewrap. pop pop pop!

The only legal way to ship anything from London to Mississagua is by shipping (flight wise)

The other way is to drive from London and deliver the animal right to the person.

Its only a 2 hour drive (or are you talking about the London England?) from London to Mississauga (if that) Just put the snake or herp in a deli cup, with holes in it and start driving~

I do that all the time. Heck I do that all the time for expos too~~

There's no easy way to ship animals locally. You CAN do it, but it will be WAY more expensive than just driving or getting a ride.

really.....

I actually drove from toronto to windsor once cuz it was going to cost me so much to have it shipped.....not to mention the pain in the butt, plus the stress/possible risk to the animal..... i'm sure people will be coming from London to the sept expo, post a board and see if someone would be willing to bring it for you!

If you don't want to do the drive yourself.....You may want to try this link for a reptile delivery service.

I'll be having a table at the show in Mississauga on the 12th.
So instead of driving in, me or Cruified can help you take it to the show that way you'll save even more with shipping...
just let us know what animal it is and where it's from~
Or if you're really wanting to drive into London, that would be fine too~~
