Beaches?

Postby MrPogona » Wed Sep 23, 2020 10:14 am

Hey, everyone! So I am very new here......But I was wondering something. We will be going to the beach Monday through Saturday. I'm taking Mr Pogona, (my beardie), and taking his UVB light for when he is in the house. His playpen, travel carrier, and food are all going as well. Am I missing anything?
Also, I know that the sand is fine for him as long as he has shade to run to. But is the salt water ok? Say if a wave came close enough for him to step in it, the salt wouldn't hurt him, right?
Thanks!
-Lauren and Mr. Pogona

Don’t let him drink the water and make sure you give him a freshwater bath afterwards. Salt water can dehydrate his skin through osmosis, so you should make sure he has plenty of vegetables and access to fresh water after so he can drink if he gets thirsty. Also it could get in his eyes, so don’t let him too deep. Bring a wash cloth and a water bottle in case you have to get salt water out of his eyes.
