Temps for 1 year old beardie

Postby Ltd3399 » Thu Jul 19, 2018 1:06 pm

My temps recently where to hot for my little baby about 110 so I bought a lamp stand to make the temps drop(also got new basking platform). The temps now are 95 - 100 .is that a good basking temp for a 1 year old beardie? Because she still wont bask and only stays there for a minute when I move get there.

Generally you want the basking surface to be around 100-105 with a gradient to cooler areas. These should be adjusted to suit the individual dragon. If she isn't staying in the basking area then temps adjusted to be a little lower are fine. Her preferences may change though so if she starts basking a lot you may want to bump them back up a little.

Yeah that should be fine. Especially if you have a nice gradient down to 75-85 on the other side so she has plenty of choices.
