Moving and/or Evacuation

Leo's can be moved in all kinds of weather conditions though. I took my Leo's with me during our evacuation from hurricane Rita. A car ride is no problem for them. Just put them in a tupperware container with a firmly closing, secure lid with moist paper towels just thick enough to allow any possible jostling to not harm them. Put breathing holes around the sides of the tupperware, rather than in the lid. Given, without electricity for a while or winter conditions, you can use heat wraps meant for humans on aching muscles or cold hands like 'ThermaCare' which will retain a safe temperature for at least eight hours. My Leo's laid right on top of theirs at night and being a dead hot summer, didn't need any during the day. It's best to have such things as heat or cool packs before hand though and store it away for any such emergency. My Leo's even have an emergency 'kit' now, boxes, packs and canned mealworms have a two year shelf life.
