Bring Mogley to a wedding?

So my husband and I are attending his cousins wedding in a couple weeks, being that I've made a point of bringing my reptile babies everywhere we are debating. Mogley already joined us at the jack and jill where we were a hit lol! The bride and bridesmaids had talked about him being in the wedding pictures. Originally we thought we would leave him home one night. Now my husband says he figured we would bring him but keep him in his travel tank at the hotel during the actual party. That being said of course now I'm ready to just bring him and keep him tucked away in one of the many wearable carriers I have! I thought about asking thr bride if she cares, but figure she has enough on her plate. Anyone really strongly AGAINST him joining us? Thoughts?

Doesn't sound like a bad idea.
I'm starting to bring my guy Kamo out a little more.

My bearded dragon is in brumation right now.
Exposure is great for animals as long as it's the right stuff.

Thanks! I agree! I've been a dragon parent for the last 15 years. My first 2 traveled cross country with me and went everywhere. My husband is newer to it but madly in love with 10 month old Mogley.

I wouldn't do it without permission. There;s always the chance that he would have a poo in his carrier and you know what a mess and how much that odor would permeate . Also it's not really great for a beardie to be carried around for hours without the proper heat or able to just be a lizard in a proper environment. Beardie's are very mellow in general and don't show distress unless it's pretty severe [ black beard, gaping, etc ] but being tucked in a carrier for hours and just being passed around as an object of curiousity for pics could be unpleasant for Mogley whether he shows it or not. Lastt but not least, not all people like reptiles.

I agree on every point. If you do get permission, i would keep his time there to a bare minimum. That's going to be a lot of sensory overload for him. It could cause him to go off food and/or be stressed and reclusive.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
