LaMar update 3.1

Hey my Cham people ~ ~ ! ! !

I'm trying the best i can for my bar veiled LaMar , but any advice i would love !

LaMar is a recuse , he was in bad conditions for about 14 months of his childhood, I got him and started everything I possibly could to make life better for him, he has a hot spot of about 88-92 degrees (with a sensor to shut heat off it is hotter that 95) the rest of his cage is about 80 , but the very bottom can be 70's . there is a live floor that cleans up after him, all plants are alive, there is also a fogger/mister that come on for 20 min every hour during only the daytime. also a dripper that falls through the plants leaves. He eats Waxworms, butter worms , super worms, crickets, blue horned worms (not from tomatoes), meal worms and dubia roaches (dusting weekly and gut loading all bugs . he also has a friend named naughty (they dont hang out though)

I will post a few pics of cage and LaMar, also I posted a pic of his friend

Thanks Cham Friends
