TRAVELING WITH BEARDIE

I’m going 4 hours away with my beardie but won’t be able to get into my room until 6pm ( leaving at 11am) . I’m planing on just hanging out at the beach and/or pool until then. Will my bearded dragon be ok with sunlight and a carrier for at least 8 hours? I’m going to be in the sun and shade.

Hello,

Your dragons will absolutely be just fine with just the sunshine & shade during the day. No
problem at all. Do you have a mesh carrier for him just to be sure he is safe & doesn't run
off, or get lost, or a leash?
That is excellent you are taking him with you, too. :D

My guy goes on road trips with me all the time and it's not a problem. They do fine at normal car temps and sometimes even enjoy car rides. You can stop at rest areas for some sun and to have a snack but it's not really necessary on such a short ride.

Glad I found this thread. We are taking visitors down to Yellowstone in August for 4 days, staying in a cabin. It's only an hour's drive so that's not a biggie. I have a rubbermaid square tub he can stay in while we're out and about. What about light other than a basking light? Since it's only 4 days, and only 2 full days away from home, does he need UVB while we're gone? Or can I give him a dose of sun in the mornings and will that be enough?

For such a short trip you wont need to bring a uv bulb unless you want to. Outside time will suffice for a couple days :)
