    I wasnt thinking about him sleeping already but my 2 year old Anakin did eat a reptilink before going to slumber about a week ago. Should i wake him slowly to put him in warm water to poop ? or will he exit his den to poop in the cage? thoughts ? light has been cut back to 8 hours and temp has dropped after keeping it nice n warm to try and delay him sleeping. apparently he's just a little too smart and has caught onto my ruse and said LEAVE ME ALONE lol

    Even with low ambient air temps, provide a basking site for a week. He’ll poop.

    If he's got heat and needs to he'll bask. I don't think he'll kill himself.
