Default vivariums?

Please can anyone advise me? I need a home for a beardie, he is the first one I have had and I do not know a lot (or anything!) about vivariums, I have the chance to buy a pennine vivarium but I am concerned that it would not withstand the heat needed??

I can remember a thread a while back about someone nearly burning their house down by melting a pennine with a heat lamp. The viv was pretty wrecked anyhow. For this reason I would never suggest using one with a heat lamp so I wouldn't have that if I were you. You want a wooden vivarium with the minimum dimensions of 4x2x2. Remember, the bigger the better.

Take a look here and here to see everything that is suggested for a BD setup.
