his basking temp is about 26 degrees Celsius, and I have Read it needs to be at least 29, but I’m using a 100w bulb and the closest branch is very close to it (no close enough to burn himself) and obviously there’s no higher watt.
Ambient temps are around 22 degrees Celsius.
My nighttime temps are always fine they never go below 20 Celsius. But it’s the daytime temp I’m worried about, he just seems to sit under the basking spot alllllllll day, and with me living in the UK and having a screen cage it’s probably because my room temp is cold?
Hi there ...
I just wanted everyone’s opinion on having two sources of heat? I live in the UK, and I feel like my Cham during the day recently stays under his basking spot a lot, and when I’m misting and put my hand in the cage to feel around I don’t feel like it’s actually that warm, so I’ve...
Since switching from a glass cage to a screen cage I’m really struggling to keep up the humidity, i know 40% through the day it acceptable for veiled’s but during the night, it’s still not going up much, I woke up this morning and it was only reading 45%. I know during the night it needs to...
It just sounds like such a little amount it’s crazy! But no problem I won’t feed him tomorrow then, if he hates me I will blame you lol 😂 thank you very much for all your help I feel so much better about everything and he definitely is happier!
great will do!
also he ate today (thank god) I gave him 5 hoppers, but he was still after more, I feel super cruel and like I’m starving him ☹️ but I was told this is enough for his age, is it definitely necessary to miss a day of feeding?
Yeah I measured and the branch is 9 inches away, I’ve set the thermometer up and currently I’m at exactly 80f and humidity of 49%, so I might just adjust that to make it a little higher, just to make sure I’m within range and it doesn’t drop below.
Thank you! That’s no problem I can definitely add more branches and plants! I went off the Veiled tested sheet and it was hard to find the plants and didn’t want to buy anything that would be toxic to him! I haven’t stopped since I finished work setting him up lol! It’s 11pm here! 🤣 I’m not sure...
I recently posted on here and got advice from some great people - I’m uploading a picture of my new set up! I know I need to get some more plants but it was all they had at my local garden centre! They’ve got a delivery on Friday so I will get a few more then!
I also purchased this digital...
Yeah I’m hoping once I set him up tomorrow In his new home he will be much better, I’ll probably hop back on here to upload a picture of his new enclosure and just get some advice on where to place the new digital thermometer/hygrometer I have purchased.
Thank you so much your such a great help!
Okay well no I have not fogged at night, I read up on that and a lot of people said they don’t use one and that hand misting was sufficient enough? So I didn’t think to buy one. I noticed he pooped before and there was no orange or yellow in colour... just normal brown with the white urates.
