    I never said 10.0
    Sorry, usually if people have basking bulbs, they usually have the ceramic heat emitter at night
     
  2. Look I’m sorry but I assure you I’ve delved into a lot of research , and work with one of the few vets willing to handle exotics if you have serious input I’m willing to listen but if you want to be rude and instill hype for no reason I’ll take down the post don’t worry

    I gave you serious input
     
  5. No you really didn’t you just argued without even reading anything and then tried to tell me I’m in the wrong with what medical expertise ?

    Edit; basking spot should actually be closer to 82-83*F

    There’s input, if you read the caresheet, it’d be backed up by it

    Here:
    Also, a male’s temperature at his basking spot is optimal between 85-87*F

  12. You mean where people recommend less feeding and a lower ambient temperature to reduce the possibility of producing eggs?!

    Bill Stand and Petr Necas’ panther chameleon caresheet is also very informative. It’s on the Chameleon Enthusiasts FaceBook page, give me a second, and I’ll link it
     
  14. Also should have said 90* not 95

    that’s to produce less eggs so it’s less taxing on the female
     
  16. But for you to go into specifics when I gave a roundabout number that is CLEARLY in the appropriate zone

  17. also I’m curious what medical professional said that altering an animals natural chemistry by force is “less taxing”

    Laying less eggs is obviously less taxing because it doesn’t take up as much calcium or strength to lay
     
  19. I’m sorry but I’ve read several articles regarding that the life expectancy of females is all over the place because of it, and the more recent f-8s and so on that everyone gets are much hardier then the predecessors and perpetuating the hype of being egg bound isn’t as common as the internet makes it seem but wouldn’t a lower temperature and her producing less eggs be a sign that she’s not healthy ?
