To be a little more specific I think what Vegas Shooby was trying to say it they can take temps in that degree range. But your overall cage temp should range in the low to mid 70's and your preferred basking temp should be about 80-82 degrees if it is a juvenile and you can bump that up about 6 degrees or so for an adult. If your baby is really young some people don't even use basking lights, depending on the overall temp of your cage. If you overall temp is hovering around 80 at the top then you don't have to use a basking light until he/she gets a little older. As far as humidity you wanna try to keep around 50%+ with spikes after misting. Using live plants, misting, and using a dripper can help keep up the humidity in your enclosure.
