Default Bearded dragon Habitat

Hello. Could a bearded dragon live in a tub for afew weeks?

He is 1' long, and the tub is a good size. Ill get dimensions soon.

It will only be for afew weeks until his new viv has arrived.

It would be on a heat mat though? I could use a bulb though?

i dont think so... they need a spot lamp for basking and they need UV too... best to get the viv sooner or try and borrow one for the few weeks...

Can you not just put a deposit down on the beardie and collect him when you have the Viv all setup and ready to go?

What happened to the viv he was living in?

At the end of the day if you are getting the same heating/lighting in a plastic enclosure instead of a wooden one.... I don't see a huge difference, as long as it is adequate size, and you will also want to be sure of the ventilation. Obviously you do need to have the correct heating / lighting in there just as you would and monitor the temps/humidity.

Yeah, it will have all of the same stuff as his viv.

The viv has taken some damage. And had a huge crack in the top from a heavy shelf falling onto it. It let out heat and wasnt very safe as the crack was getting bigger. The glass had also smashed.
The viv is now in a skip, and he is happily roaming the living room.


So, il go ahead with the move.

Thanks.

As long as you can keep the humidity low, and get a sufficient temperature gradient, there is no reason not to use a tub - you might want to cover three of the sides though for a bit of security.

To get the right gradients and keep humidity down, you will probably be best off using a mesh top for the tub...
