Going on a mini Holiday

Postby EsaMatt » Tue Feb 14, 2017 11:06 am


Hi all, Im going on a 3 day 2 night trip away from home. Any suggestions on how I could take care of my beardie? I have my girlfriend's sister to clean up the daily poop and turn on the lights every day as well as provide new vege daily. However she will never be able to feed my toothless crickets, any advice?

How old is Toothless? Is she afraid of crickets and that's why she can't feed them?

It might be a good idea to put the lights on outlet timers so they come on and off automatically on a set schedule. This will be helpful both when you're away and home.

As far as bugs go, if she won't offer crickets, can you store some black soldier fly larvae or silk worms? Toothless' age is also a factor. A younger dragon won't want to go as long without food but an adult would have no problem with a few days away.

My oldest actually liked those pellets you can get at pet stores. My youngest will not touch them..
Dry kibble is an option for a few days if your dragon will eat it, but I definitely would not recommend as a staple, of course.

Otherwise, deep and smooth dishes can contain dubia roaches. I will put some in a bowl for my youngest while I'm at work and he appears to actually eat out of it. Many roaches are gone by the time I'm home and they would not have escaped.
