    Hey everyone :) Myself and the OH went to the seaside today and he suggested something that I hadn't thought of - using large smooth beach rocks to create extra viv decor for the crestie. So, this maybe a seriously stupid suggestion - I don't know, but if I was to attach them to each other...

I just bought my first Beardie a few days ago and she(hopefully)'s doing very good so far, although I haven't seen too much poop yet, but I guess it will come or I'll have to make sure the temperatures haven't dropped.
