Got A Beardie!

The reptile wanting disease has struck again! I now am gonna be taking care of an adult bearded dragon! He was a rescue, as I had a friend who couldn't take care of it anymore. He asked me if I wanted to take it and I agreed! So now I will be getting him Sunday plus a full habitat setup. He wasn't handled daily to my knowledge so if he is skittish how would I tame him? I assume it would be like I did with my snake, first putting in something to get it used to my scent, then touching, then handling him? I already know basic care as I actually know basic care for almost all reptiles, as I researched every one I could find then compared them, so I knew what pet was best. I have also been constantly researching to learn as much as I can I normally do at least a month of research before I get an animal. Whoops! Is there any tips yall experienced keepers have for me? Thanks!

Hi, can you put a few photos up of the enclosure and give details of the ambient and surface temps plus the humidity range and how you measure those, also say what type and wattage the heat/light bulbs/tubes are? Thanks!

He still has a not so optimal setup, but I will try to post pics as soon as possible.
