UniHeat Heat Pack - 40+ Hours
Small Animal Shipping Warmer
When shipping sugar gliders and the outdoor temperature in either
the ship from city, transfer city, or destination city is a bit too
chilly (less than 65 degrees), we recommend that you use a portable
heat source to protect your sugar gliders from the elements.
We've used these heat packs in the dead of winter and have found
that they are quite effective in keeping the gliders warm and
This one-time use, disposable heating pad heats to 100-115 degrees
surface temperature for 40 hours plus, keeping the transit
cage at a comfortable temperature plenty long enough to get your
sugar gliders transported safely. One warmer can generally
raise the temperature 10 - 12 degrees per cubic foot of insulated
space. Use multiple heat packs for larger spaces or higher
desired temperatures gains.
These heat packs are "turned on" when removed from the
plastic outer packaging and exposed to oxygen in the air. High
grade iron powder contained within undergoes rapid rusting from
which heat is a by-product. We recommend placing the heat pack
under a shallow amount of aspen shavings and the sugar glider inside
of a nest box or sleeping pouch.
Do not place the sugar glider directly in contact with the heat
pack. We are highly experienced in shipping young sugar
gliders that are slightly over 2 months OOP (out of pouch) in
age. The babies have always done very well with this
product. As a word of caution, however, babies are not usually
big time chewers, so we are not concerned with the babies getting
into the heat pack itself. If you are shipping adult sugar gliders, you may want to use extra precautions
to protect the heat pack from being "opened". Because of
the sugar glider's nocturnal nature, it is highly unlikely than any
sugar glider will want to stay awake if you are shipping during
