Just purchased a bearded dragon, and was wondering if the basking area is the right temperature (esp not too hot). I can only find thermometers that go up to 100, so I can only guess if it`s OK.
-33 gallon tank. -150W Heat Lamp -Rocks are piled up to about 10 inches from the top of the cage.
I`m worried because he doesn`t seem to want to stay there for more than 2 minutes before leaving for the other end of the tank. To the touch, the rock is very hot, and I can place my hand on it, but it`s uncomfortably hot.
Any rules of thumb out there for checking this?
