I'm giving my Piggy away this week and the lady who is taking him lives about an hour and a half away from me. I'm wondering about the best way to transport him. I have to take his tank apart to move it so he can't stay in there for the trip. I'm also thinking it may not be the best idea to just keep him on my lap in case he tries to run or something. What's the best way to transport him? Cardboard box or something? How should I make sure he stays warm etc?

well considering it is only an hour and a half away, you can pretty much transport however you feel is best. You could hold him for the ride if he likes being held or maybe put a blanket in a box for him to lay on. He doesn't need any food or anything since it is only an hour and a half.

he will be fine.

Thanks. I know it's a short trip, but I worry about him. I want him to be comfortable.

A box or small dog crate works good for trips, I always wrapped my adults in a towel then put them in a dog crate.

A ferret crate with very soft blankets and (depending on the weather) some heat packs underneath that should be fine. Have a safe trip.

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?
