Leaving for a few days, need advice

Postby Muffin797 » Tue Jul 14, 2020 5:18 pm

Hi everyone, I am leaving for a few days soon and I need some advice.

My beardie is a 1 year and 5 month old boy. I am leaving on thursday and will be back sunday night. From what I've read he should be perfectly fine if I leave him for a few days correct? I would usually bring him along, but it is a long car ride. I am trying to make the time as comfortable for him as possible.

I was thinking I would give him a nice long bath on wednesday to try to get him to poop. Then I would feed him a big meal on thursday and leave a big salad in his bowl. I was also thinking of leaving a bowl with some of the dry foods perhaps? Maybe I should leave some mealworms/superworms around his enclosure? I don't usually leave a water bowl, is this some thing I should do? I will be back in time on sunday to feed him. Is there anything else I should do?

I have my lights on a timer btw.

I would not leave super worms in the tank - they have been known to bite -- meal worms not sure about - what about the lights? No water bowl - if hes drinking in the bath or eating his veggie hes gonna get moisture from that - I would leave the salad on his cool side of the tank -- and if he has had a drink he will be fine for a day or two w/ out the water - feed his insects before you leave him and leave a good size salad - he will be fine for a day or two w/ out food -
