    Gaping and optimal temperature

    I know Dragons is capable to regulate temperature and itís normal. But I would assume that if she regularly gapes outside of basking area this can be too hot in enclosure? Is it correct assumption?

    It is possibly too hot but they do gape outside the basking area.
    What temps are you getting?

    My current setup is (what is right now):
    - Hot side: 32-34
    - Basking spot: 39-40
    - Cold side: 26-28

    I just did small adjustment as I believe it's was 41-42 at the basking spot what I think was too hot for new landscape in vivarium.
