Default poly box

Where can I get a polystyrene box from???
Ive looked on ebay but they are too big or have holes in them for chicken eggs.
Also for my cresties to lay in, shall I put the polybox IN the viv and then when they are done put it straight onto a mat for incubation or, put a different tub in there for her to lay in and put that straight into the poly box for incubation. OR do I need to get the eggs out and lay them out a set way in the incubator???

Reptile shops get loads of them in every week with their livestock and/or frozen purchases... if you're ever in Cardiff we always have them hanging around, we throw about 2-3 out every week. Your local rep shop may well have some spare
Over 100 snakes & lizards available from www.reptilecymru.co.uk with UK delivery options! Online store with actual pictures of our animals for sale.

Any fishmongers, or the wet fish counter in the supermarket will give you a poly box.

You need a different lay box for the lizard something like a sandwich tub for her to lay in with substrate at the bottom then you move the eggs being careful not to turn them in to for example a cricket tub half filled with damp vermiculite which then goes in your pollybox incubator, with your heat mat and stat all wired up
