I have one of those monster boxes 29.5x15.5x9.5 3/4"insulation and I cant seem to get the temp up at all! I have used 4 heat packs to experiment with. two 60 hour and 2 40 hour and it is failing to raise the temp. First i taped the packs to the top of the lid with two different kinds of tape and the heat from the heat packs seem to melt the tape glue and make them fall to the bottom.Next i wrapped them in some newspaper and just placed them at the bottom of the box but no difference in temp after two hour,temp outside the box is 58...temp inside the box is 58! I have approximately 40 chameleons to ship from New Hampshire to california. The temp is very cold here and i would like to know what is the lowest safe temp to ship in..i have seen some sites claiming they can ship chams in temps to 15 degrees but i have put off shipping untill the temps rise some as it is in the single digits here.What am i doing wrong?
