    Temperature controllers / thermostats are not ideal for basking reptiles like beardies. As in nature, the beardy should ultimately be his/her own temperature controller. They do this by moving into...

    I don't have a good answer as to which is good and bad, but the caterpillar's diet will play a big part, and some species will feed on both beardy toxic and beardy safe plants.

    They later decided that the male wasn't guarding his mate. The audio interview mentions that they initially thought it was the case but decided otherwise after testing the theory. I'm not sure if I'd...

    I guess I should have done a search.

    There was a two year university study done, though no real data in the article linked. I'd like to have an idea of how many lizards are in a given area and how...

    Spot on, the 'supposed' monogamous behaviour displayed by Shinglebacks. It likely doesn't hold water in this case, what are the odds on picking up the lifelong mate by chance.

    I think she should be fine, she'll get up an look for a drink if she feels dehydrated. Their natural range is generally further south than the central beardies so they're probably capable of being...

    Her first year was in a cooler climate and she slept, so there might be something to it. I don't think you'll cause her harm either way, but if she insists on being awake anyway then some heat might...
