Hi

I'm just wondering if my temps are ok directly under my basking light it's sitting about 42-43 but then if you come down the arms of my log where they normally bask it's 32 then in my cool end it's about 26 during the and 21ish at night. I've attached a picture so you can see my log and where they bask etc.

As long as they can choose temps varying between low 20's up to 39~42C they'll choose what they feel comfortable with, so what you have is OK. Overnight temps seem a bit warm however, are you leaving a heater on? Or is it just that you have a warm house?

I think it's because we have a warm flat I've brought a lower wattage basking bulb ready for the summer ;)

I've also changed my substrate from the chippings to slate tiles, with a small amount of chippings for digging, I can also block of the chippings when giving live food, so there's no chance of them eating any.

As one of my dragons is compacted, I've been bathed her Sunday and omg did she poop........ I bathed her again yesterday and another load come out but her tummy still looks fat and bloated so I will bath her again later is there anything else I can do to help her, I can't help but think she's been compacted since before I got her.... As I think the pooh I've been seeing is coming out of the other dragon :(

Other than continuing the bathing a visit to a vet to confirm that she's still impacted would be advisable.
