Moving Amphibians

Ok I'm not actually moving house anytime soon I don't think but in a few years (two and a half maximum) I will move (it might even be to another country) and today I was just thinking about how I could move my frogs and fish without it being too traumatic. If I finally decide to stay in Glasgow when I finish uni then it won't be much of a problem but if I decide to do a postgrad in france or something how could I move them so they are comfortable and don't freeze or anything on their journey?
I know I'm thinking way ahead and all that but it's just something that bugs me in the back of my mind all the time, and I really wouldn't like to have to give them away just because I have to move.

Thanks in advance for your help it would really help my paranoid mind lol

Ok well first off I think that you may not be able to bring amphibians or fish across a border with some sort of importing type license.

To transport the amphibians you could use deli cups with air holes,Critter Keepers etc... anything that will hold water and moisture to keep them mosit.

For fish plastic bags could work.

To keep the warm you could use a heat pad.

Thank you canadiancritter. I would check licences and stuff before hand. I mean I don't even know if I will leave the country it all, but I will check every option before i do make a final decision.
Thanks again for your help.
