    Question How do I drive 2 days with my frog?

    Hello, first post here, I have an Albino Cranwelli named Tendy. She(I think but may be far too early) is ~3 1/8" long.

    My question is how can I drive for 2 days with least stresses to the frog. And then drive back 17-21 days later. Any ideas?

    Is my best choice really to board for ~$150 for the 3 weeks?

    Thank you in advance.

    If you need to bring your frog with just run the air conditioner or the heater so that it keeps the car interior around 74 degrees. Make sure the air isn't blowing directly on the frog
    Put him in a small to medium kritter keeper with moist moss.
    When you get to your destination you can use a small desk lamp with a 25 watt red bulb to warm him.

    That sounds like it's not as big a deal as I had thought. I was intending on leaving it in it's current enclosure and using a foam box with the thermostat/heater combo powered by an inverter. It would be a straight shot, being that two of us will be driving in shifts.

    Does this sound more or less ideal?
    Beyond normal concerns of temperature and moisture, are there other concerns I should have doing this?

    Yeah just don't let direct sunlight hit the kritter keeper and don't leave him in the car....
    All that stuff you said is pretty much over kill. Two days in average temps is no big deal. At all.
    The kritter keepers even have handles

    Put the frog's container inside a small cooler. Put a small bottle of cold water (or ice if the situation warrants) in the cooler, wrapped in a towel to prevent direct contact with the frog's container. Check the temp whenever you stop, replacing the cold water as needed.

    The biggest thing i was worried about was stress from the turns and acceleration/deceleration. I suspect due to how they move their heads when you turn them, body or container that they have a very accurate sense of orientation.
