Stress Free Suggestions for Transporting Your Bearded Dragon (Part III)

Drive carefully when your bearded dragon is in the car to ensure the trip doesn’t cause too much stress.

Prepare Your Beardies Temporary Enclosure 

You can make a good makeshift tank from whichever enclosure you want to use by focusing on making it warm and comfortable for your bearded dragon. This could mean lining it with lots of blankets or towels and making sure he’s safely tucked in.

Besides keeping your bearded dragon warm, heat bulbs and UVB also help your beardie to accurately digest its food.

If you don’t have heat bulbs set up while traveling, then it is best to not feed your beardie because they won’t be able to absorb the UVB that is necessary in order for them to digest their food correctly.

Right into a Heated Car

This is really important if you will be traveling in the cold seasons.

Bearded dragons are used to warm temps so they will love you taking the extra time to warm up your car.

Drive Carefully

Driving too fast, quick breaking, or harsh turns can all cause your bearded dragon to be thrown around whatever you’re transporting them in.

It is critical to lessen any possible stressors or complications that come from being out of their habitat which a comfortable ride will really do.

Buckle Up

On the heels of driving carefully is being sure your beardie is secure during transportation. Having to quickly stop could cause your dragon to get thrown around and getting injured. Don’t forget to buckle the carrier in to make sure it remains in place as much as possible.

Check on Your Beardie Often

While transporting, make sure to continuously monitor your beardie to be sure it is secure, safe, and the right temperature.

Having your beardie escape can be very troublesome and hazardous for both of you so have eyes on it at all times.
