Leaving my Bearded Dragon

Postby BuddytheDragon » Sat Jul 21, 2018 12:04 pm

Hello,
I have a question so going to cut straight to the point...I am going on holiday soon and a family member is going to feed my dragon, HOWEVER, the person refuses to touch or handle him which is a huge bummer.
So , will he be okay to not be touched for 13 days or will it affect his health negatively?
Many Thanks

Hello,

Hm, well, not touching him shouldn't affect his health negatively but he may get a little down
& out without any interaction at all.
As long as they ensure they will feed him & be sure he is alright, check his lights, etc then he
should be fine while you are gone. He will definitely be happy to see you.

I suggest you set up a webcam to watch him while away and maybe set up Skype so you talk to him and he can see and hear you (on the screen)….

This will help you feel better about how he is coping, and I think he will respond to seeing you and hearing you.
