    Before I start, what I am going to say as care is what I thought the care is through research. I will need a person who either has a water dragon (eastern or Gippsland) to fact check this thread and respond to me anything I missed and also any mistakes I made.
    Here we go:

    TEMPERATURES:
    Basking: 30-33c
    Cooler end 20-25c
    (monitored by thermometer and thermostat)

    UV:
    10.0 tube or compact bulb (in reflector) near basking spot (as they associate heat with light)
    Natural sunlight is best.

    ENCLOSURE
    Minimum: 4'(W)x3'(D)x3'(H)
    Ideal: 6'(W)x3'(D)x4'(H)
    (size in ft)

    HABITAT REQUIREMENTS:
    2 reasonably sized hides in different areas of enclosure (1 warm, 1 cool)
    Basking spot (rock or branch)
    Large water bowl (that allows soaking at minimum), easy to escape to prevent drowning
    Climbing elements
    deep-dish substrate.

    DIET:
    Many vegetables
    Live feeders (crickets, mealworms, Dubiah roaches)
    Lean meat (occasional fuzzy or pinky)
    (essentially what a beardie can eat)

    is this care accurate?
