I had a 150 halogen spot that a temped at 123. I temped it at the hottest basking spot in the cage my only assumption could be that she stayed in just the right spot for too long. I have switched to a few lesser heat lights a a zilla hundred spot she seemed to do better with that set up
My monitor got some burns on her back nothing has popped she just has some heat blisters. What are some ways I can sooth her? I've Been using the tropical alovera mist and some antibiotic ointment but is there anything else I can do? Thanks for the help.
Sometimes it's better to use multiple smaller wattage bulbs to Acheive a higher and wider range to bask. Lowering your current bulb is an idea but play around with the lighting your options are limitless
Please watch and feel free to comment on anything you feel should be done differently to benefit my monitor
I like their temperaments from what I've seen with my experience with them. I might get one just to gain some experience with an animal I'm unfamiliar with. They're neat guys and not too common in the beginner reptile world so It will be fun to being one in to work to teach my co workers as well
You can't write off monitors due to space. Timors and dwarf timors are small as are ackies. There's a surprising amount of arboreal monitors that have reasonable space requirements that's where I was hoping you guys would come in with ideas
