Out of town

Postby Kalpi1mr » Wed Feb 20, 2019 9:05 pm

I am new to the bearded dragon world, but am enjoying my new friend very much. I am concerned about what to do in the summer with him. My family has a summer place about an hour away that we go to pretty much every weekend in the summer. We typically leave Friday evening and return Sunday afternoon. Would it be best to give him a big meal on Friday, leave him for the weekend, and feed immediately upon return Sunday? He has automatic timers for his heat and lighting. Or would it be best to try and take him with us? I don’t want to stress him out either way. He is currently a baby. Thanks!

As long as the lights are on automatic & you feed them before you go, I'd think they'll be okay because it sounds like it's only about 1.5 days total. I'd maybe feed them early in the day on Fri and then give some bugs before leaving but take any food out before going so it doesn't rot or promote mold growth. I haven't tried this, so maybe others will have better advice. When they get older, traveling might be fun!

I'd try to take him with you. Get a little travel setup for him and stuff. Around summer time I let my little one run around with me and go outside on leashes and walk around with her on my shoulder. But it all depends on how comfortable the little one is when old enough to enjoy the outdoors.
