how hot should my cage be getting?

95-110 on the BASKING spot, and only around 70-80 on the COOL side. Make sure this is correct.
Beardies need a "temperature gradient", which is a cool-to-warm environment.

Also make sure you are measuring your temperatures with either a DIGITAL PROBE, or a TEMP GUN.

The dial ones can be off about 10-15 degrees. Also, when measuring the BASKING spot, make sure the probe or gun is ON the spot. For example, if you have a log in the middle of the hot side, make sure the probe/gun is ON the log. If it's in the air or the corner, it only measures the "air", not the heat beam under the bulb.

If the bulb you're using is too hot, try a house bulb. They work well. There is no need for a "reptile" bulb, as flood spot lamps, house bulbs, do the same thing.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
