I recently went on holiday here in the UK and it got me thinking – what do you do with your reptiles when you go on holiday?
Keeping reptiles when your going away on holiday can be tricky depending on your reptile. It isn't always possible to leave your pet at home for the duration of your holiday and this can cause problems and limitations when choosing a holiday. It is possible to leave an adult leopard gecko for 1 or a t a push 2 nights alone if your on a short weekend break. Unless you have a friend or relative who can care for your gecko it can be tricky if your going for a week or more.
There are not many places which offer holiday boarding for reptile pets – which is a real shame. I know some pet shops can offer them which is good but it inst always possible. Its also very difficult to find somewhere which does it as a main feature (I have found just one place!)
I always take mine with me. I don't holiday abroad so I put my leopard geckos in a viv and take them with me! I also take my bearded dragon too which gets a lot of attention when im driving.
I take my leopard geckos in a large plastic faunarium with a heat mat. I put in some of their objects from their larger vivarium such as their cave, water bowl, plants etc (so everything isn't alien and it does a good job of calming them down on a trip).
This brings me to another more interesting poll which I want to get your help with. What do you do with your leopard geckos / reptiles while your on holiday?
Let me know your ideas and thoughts – im very interested in hearing them. Would you like a place where you can keep your reptiles while your away which are actually readily available?
