bearded dragon lighting

  1. Lizards
    Hi, I got my bearded dragon about a week ago and she's started keeping her eyes closed a lot more. I've heard that this can be due to the lighting. I have a 26W UVB coil bulb from EXO TERRA. I've heard that this might be the problem. Any advice would be great, thanks.
