Hey there! So, your tank looks okay, but your going to want to put your hammock a bit higher so your dragon can get close enough to the heat. You want to use a heat gun to check the temps directly on the basking site, and you will want it to be around 100-108F. So, take a look at the bulb on your UVB fixture, is there a plastic covering over the bulb? If so, you will need to remove that. As well as hang your UVB light UNDER the screen of your tank so that your dragon can get about 6-8" from the bulb. What are you feeding your dragon daily? You are going to want to get a few more hammocks and pieces of decor so that you can arrange them so your dragon can get close enough to the basking light as he/she wants. (i.e 6" in one spot, to maybe 9" close to the bulb in another spot. Hope you get this all sorted out! And good luck with your baby :) .

Beardies tend to close their eyes to make something simply no longer exist to them. Mari does it when I hold a vegetable she doesn’t like or want up to her. She thinks it’s not there if she can’t see it. 😂
