Hey! So I have never owned a bearded dragon before but have been doing research for months now and been speaking to breeders, reptile stores, also online research I have chosen to go with tile as the substrate as that was the majority vote, I also have made sure I have got the best equipment just wondered what your thoughts were on my tile set up?

Also any advice on bringing home my new baby which will be between 8-9 weeks when I get it, just wondered what to do in regards to handling ext, as i have heard mixed views on it and any other advice you think I might need would be highly appreciated. Look forward to reading your reply’s 🙂

Hi there ! This is an exciting time for you, lots of fun coming your way in a scaly package. :) Your set up looks great, one thing you might want to tweak is the position of the uvb + heat bulb. You ideally want the heat + uvb to overlap because they will spend a lot of time under the heat bulb.

As for handling, you can usually do so in a limited way right off the bat. Every beardie is different, a day or 2 after getting him you might not bother him if he shies away but after that you just start putting your hand on the floor near him + pick him up right away if he seems comfortable. You'll figure it out as you go along.

Hello,

The setup looks great, I love the tile there.
Definitely place the long tube bulb closer to the basking bulb, overlapping them to help in
creating a nice basking + UVB area for him.
Post more pictures when it is all finished, too.
