Rep: alpenglow is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Moving with aquatic newt ??

I'm going to be driving up to college in a few weeks, and I plan on taking my paddletail newt with me. I'm unsure of how to transport him (it'll be a 10-hour car ride). I've seen advice to just put newts in a tubberware with damp moss in an ice box, but given he's fully aquatic I'm worried it would stress him out too much to take him out of the water.

I've transported him before over a much shorter distance (about 10 minutes) by putting him in a tubberware with a few inches of water, but I'm worried this wouldn't hold up over such a long distance. Does anyone have advice / experience with this?
