I find the basking temp for juveniles and females to be too high juveniles should stay under 78˚F and adult females 80-82 IMHO.
I also stay closer to 82 for the males

That's for a Jackson's right? I'll make changes to the temps I listed in the description box of the video. How'd you come to that conclusion?
