    Default Hurricane prepareness kit for reptiles?

    So, as the title suggests I live in florida and we may or may not have a cat 5 heading our way. Im not super worried about the crested geckos, because I have battery operated fans and ice packs if my power goes out etc. Im a little more worried for my bearded dragon. How do I keep him warm etc if the electricity goes out? Im also a little worried about my leos and what I can do for their belly heat. Any suggestion? Ty hopefully this thread helps others who may have similar concerns, since this is my first hurricane with reptiles.

    Do a search for uniheat heat packs. They're different from hand warmers in that they don't get super hot, but last longer. People use them for shipping tropical fish/plants. I just ordered some 40hr ones off Amazon.

    I hope you will be safe. My daughter lives near Jacksonville; hoping she will be OK too.

    Do you have waterproof carrier cases for them?

    I agree with what was said.

    Hope you make it out okay! Or better yet, I hope it doesn't even hit land. Good luck!

    Hey, have not seen anything from Neonprint (& a few others) since the hurricane...everybody OK out there??

    If you went through one of the hurricanes, what worked or didn't work for you as far as caring for your reptiles?

    Neonprint’s profile says she was active as of today, so she’s probably ok It would be interesting to hear what people did though!
