What're you using for heating? Substrate?

Substrate is just some paper towel for easy clean up and as for heating I have a basking lamp on one side of the tank shinning down ontop of the cave along with a small heat pad under the cave. I'm going to be getting another hide for it later today so that it can choose whether it prefers sleeping in a warmer spot or a cooler spot in the tank. And as promised here's some pics. I'll be adding more pics as it gets more and more settled in.

Looks good!
I tried to replicate how it was being kept at PetSmart so that it wouldn't be as stressful of an environment change. The fake plants will eventually be thinned out if not completely removed later on but I figured atleast this way that it would be more relaxing for it with the additional cover. Made some decent progress tho on the taming part. It won't just immediately run away from me like it did yesterday. That and I even got licked a few times lol.
