    Rock temperatures

    Hi
    Our family has a new member..
    We are unsure of a few habitat things.
    Our basking rock is a large round rock we found at the beach it seams to be reaching temperature of 50 degrees Celsius we are sure this is too hot so are moving it up the cool end.. is there a better type of rock to put up the hot end that our dragon will not hurt himself on..
    Also what is an average temperature the rocks should get to.
    We really do not want to hurt our dragon.
    Help please.
    It's a pogona henrylawscni about 5 months old
    Thank you
    Also how do I attach a picture

    I think you should be looking at around 40 - 43 deg. What is the distance from your basking light is the rock? A lot of people use a log on a slope. That way the beardie can move up or down to find the most suitable temp. Click on reply then you should see "Go Advanced" on the bottom right hand corner of the reply box. You will find links there to attach pictures

    It's the big flat round rock in the middle.. It's favorite at night when the lights are out..nice and warm.

    Don't be afraid of your rock, your dragon will choose whether to bask on it or not. Leave it under the heat lamp and add a branch at an angle so he/she can climb up higher if needed. Most dragons like to bask VERY close to the lamp but let it choose where it wants to be.
