How we Pack our Dragons for Shipping


We line all our boxes with a high density polyurethane foam. It is stronger and has a higher R rating for insulation than regular styrofoam.

Sometimes we use packing paper
Sometimes we use shredded paper
Small babies are placed in deli cups or small boxes wrapped in fleece or paper towels
They snuggle up for a long nap on the way to their new homes
Bigger dragons are placed in muslin bags
The bag is secured with a zip ty so the dragon cannot get out
The bagged dragon is placed on soft packing material
More soft packing materialis placed on top
Heat packs are used if temps drop below 50º on the way
The foam top is placed last
And the box is taped shut. YES, we normally put small ventilation holes in the sides
