Hi we are new to this. We have done loads of research on bearded dragons just waiting for viv to come so we can set it up. Anyone got any advice.

Thanks Shaz x

Hi, welcome. Just keep reading care sheets and get your viv set up and temperatures right before you get your beardie. You will probably get more response on here if you ask specific questions about anything you are unsure of. Buy your beardie from a reputable source and make sure it looks healthy, well nourished and alert - and enjoy!

Hi Jools thanks for the advice We have picked loads up already. I think we have got everything just unsure where to put the thermonstate probe as I have read in the middle or 3/4 towards the cooler end and do you put it at the bottom or the top.

Usually toward the cool end, halfway up the back wall, set it to about 85f. You may then need to play around with the position of the thermostat probe until your basking spot temp is correct 110f(place a thermometer probe here). Hope this makes sense.

Thankyou for the advice and yes that makes sense. I have also read the humidity has to be right as it can affect their breathing. Is this right and what should the humidity be. Thanks for the help. x
