Default Will it be ok????

Can a bearded dragon live for around 10days in a 60x30x30cm because thats the biggest one that i can carry with me.It will only be for a fewdays and i will handle them a lot so it will be out all the time.Will it stress it a lot?

Why have you got to carry it with you? Why not wait until you are well and truly settled and in a position to buy what is needed before getting a Bearded Dragon, or indeed any reptile.

S/he will not want to be handled a lot nor out all the time, and yes it will stress it a lot.

No. it will be difficult to get the correct basking temp and have a low enough temp in the cool end.

They should be left well alone for the first few weeks and only handled if absolutely necessary.

"Them" indicates multiple lizards which really isn't a good idea especially for a new keeper like yourself. A single beardie needs a 5'x3'x3' or thereabouts so 2 will need at least a 7'.

Yes it will stress it/them.

As above if you are getting a lizard wait until you can provide what it needs. The enclosure needs to be setup for a few days at least in advance to make sure everything is perfect. You should have the lizard for 20ish years so be patient.

get someone to look after it for you, ive just been away on holiday for a week. my mum and dad looked after mine daily whilst i was away.
if you cant do that, you will be suprised at local reptile shops that do boarding, i was suprised myself at a shop near me, its only £2.75 a day..... which if you think about it isnt that bad, cost of electric per day + food per day.... all included



I really wouldnt be taking it in the car and travelling around, think of it from a general point of view... they are territoral animals, so if they're surrounding keep constantly changing they are going to be confused which can lead to stress, stress can make humans ill, let alone lizards


im no expert by any means and certainly not here to preach at you, but i really would try and avoid doing what you are about to by any means necessary

You either buy another full sized enclosure or you get someone to look after it.
