Customer Question

I have a bearded dragon maybe under 6 mos old. Got from petsmart about a month ago. On her neck she had hard Claus like spots that are slowly flaking off but seem to be taking scales with it you can see some skin. She is currently shedding a little. Not sure if this happens sometimes or if is something to worry about.

Can you tell me about the set up?


Diet Veggies/prey?

UVB light linear tube or compact coil, strength, age of bulb and brand?

Basking light?

Temps in Basking area, warm side and cool side?

How temps are measured?
