Hi Everyone,

I am trying to find some advise about Chinese Water Dragons.

My boyfriend is moving in with me bring Spyke his cwd, I have no problem with this, but do have some questions.

Spyke's home is going to be a newly built one, different from the one he is in now. The one he is in now would fall apart if moved!

How can I make it less stressful for him when we move him not only into a new built home, but a completely diiferent place and surroundings from what he is use to?

There will only be a very few items from his old home moving with him.

Any advise will be greatful.

Many thanks

well i would say definitely put as much of the old stuff in his new viv as possible, if you don't like the look you can slowly remove it, over a matter of weeks.
other than that all you can do is leave him well alone for a few days when he moves in, then start feeding him a little bit. and try to have him out of the old viv and into the new one as quickly as possible.
i found this worked with my cwd when we moved her in 3 weeks ago!

Thank you

Just to say a BIG 'thank you' to you all with you advise on moving Spyke the cwd.

He was moved Saturday and is already eating locust & cricks, it didn't seem to stress him at all.

Kind Regards to you all
Love Anj.
