Default help plz

i have my beardies in seperate 3ft wooden vivs
both have repti glo 10.0 25w uv
40w basking lights
and heat mat

the basking area is around 105-110
but i think the cool end is running to high at 95 is this correct
they both never seem to go at the basking end.
should i take away the heat mats or do they really need them.

We just use a baking spot - no heat mats.

Basking temp sits about 105-110 like yours but the cool end's about 80-85.

You could maybe try removing the heatmats if they're raising the cool end to high?

Heat mats are not required by bearded dragons. They feel heat from above not from underneath. I bet if you remove them you will notice a difference .
