If you just got a new beardie, introduce your beardie to the community! If you're a newcomer, say hello and introduce yourself.

I was just posting about some feeding questions and remembered I still need to do one of these introductions! So anyway, here's Bebe my possibly 2 or 3 year old rescue beardie:

She seemed to be stressing about her reflection so I put up the random posters/newsprint. She doesn't seem to mind it and it leads to some good photos.

Don't ever interrupt me while I'm reading the New York Review of Books!

Her new favorite spot for some reason

She fell asleep like this which was really cute but unfortunately not very comfortable for my arm.

I'd love to hear any feedback on her setup. This site has already been an invaluable resource for me, especially for getting her uvb set up (it was not good before) and I've already noticed really positive changes in her behavior. Figured the least I could do is share some photos!

I'm glad you're able to give her a good home. Setup looks really good. The lights are at an angle which is OK but not optimal. If you can get an adjustable lamp stand or two along with hanging wire for the fixtures (some come with these) then you can hang them directly overhead (and easily change the height to adjust temps).

Thanks for the advice! I just got a hanging fixture and now all the lights are directly overhead. Definitely makes it easier to control temps and I haven't noticed her staring at the cool end light, which she used to do sometimes when it was at an angle.
