    Go Brettix! Very helpful! I currently have my 28cm long boy in a 90 x 45 x 45...stupid internet said that was the legal size...I LITERALLY got it home then realised it was supposed to be 120 x 60 x 60... SOOOO I plan to upgrade The Doctor's viv within the next 6 months (depending on his growth rate)... I am also trying to find the Reptile One melamine viv which is 120 x 60 x 120... so it'll have length and height ...cos my beardie loves to climb.

    Hi there I am new to beardies. Is a 100W infared globe to much wattage for the basking spot? Just had the thermometer underneath and it registered 49.9C! I am thinking at that temp, it would fry my future beardies... would 50W be more ideal? The heap lamp sits about 15cm away from the basking point

    I don't know what idiot told you to buy an infrared lamp but you should punch this fool in the nose!Beardies need a bright white lamp just like the sun (funny that) the sun is not red!!!
    I keep a variety of lamps available and change them according to the weather.Central beardies can tolerate a maximimum of about 45C

    We have a UVB light for the terrarium. No one has advised me to not use the infared bulb?

    A bright white bulb is certainly the way to go, and will produce about the same amount of infrared (also known as heat). The red light bulbs you find in pet shops are not really suitable for desert dwelling basking species like Beardies.

    Worried owner

    Hi there, im a new owner of a dragon. I have a cooler end and warmer end with both appropriate lighting. My dragon sits down the cooler end for hours. I get worried because he doesnt take himself to the warmer end and he often feels cold, should he know to go to the warmer end when he gets cold. He is about 5 months old. Any info would be appreciated.

    Cheers
