Hi,

UV doesn't penetrate though glass. A few hours of sunlight will help though. This is what he needs -

Livefood UK Ltd.

If you order that before 3pm tomoro it should be with your friend on wednesday!

Yes UV is essential i have seen lots of bent spines and rescued a bd that had severe MBD. For the time being i would take it to a rep shop who would A)sell you a uv light and B) house the dragon until your sorted (for a minimal cost)

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

Totally agree with these guys, UV is a must.

I tend to get everything prior to picking up my rep, best way in my opinion
