    Hey! I'm considering getting myself a blue tongue skink but there's so much conflicting info on care! I had a baby one as a kid (until my mum let him go) & the care seemed so much simpler back then (although I guess I wasn't quite old enough to do my own research).
    I'm not sure on some of the supplies I need
    #1 do I need a heat mat AND heat lamp? or will just one be sufficient? I live an hour south of sydney if the climate makes any difference. If I need both, how many watts?
    #2 what kind of uvb globe do I need? any brands you would warn against?
    #3 Is this enclosure (largest size) acceptable? Keeping animals on wood kinda weirds me out for some reason
