i couldn't find it anywhere, but how hot does the basking spot need to be for a panther?
What type you got, and is it a baby or adult?
neither,im trying to get as much info before buying one. i want to start off with a 3 month old, so im guessing baby.
For a 3 months old I'd recommend temps a bit cooler, like between 80 and 82. I would gradually increase the temps to 85 or 86 as an adult if you have a male. I keep females in the low 80's even as adults. I'm attaching my blog for new keepers below. It will help you to keep your little one healthy.
thanks for the info
See I have a question about this.... I try to keep basking for Stanley (5 months) at 88 degrees and downed his bulb size to 60 watts to achieve this but every time the temperature goes down he moves closer to the bulb to get hotter... Daytime temps in my apt range from 70-80 degrees (I open all windows when I'm home to run fresh air)... I also have Herbie at a basking point of about 83 but he does the same thing... He'll climb the cage if he has to just to get that extra heat... Could it be because both Stanley and Herbie's breeder gave them TONS of natural sunlight early on?
They love the heat so much you could use a 100 watt they would still go as close to the bulb as possible and get a bad burn if you allowed it.
