I too agree with TonyH1981 it can be very bad for a beardie not to have the essential uv lighting it is simply not fair on the animal and i too have heard of pet shops offering tempery shelter for reps for a fee and that definatly would be the best course of action for your mate to take to make up for his lack of comman sense
