Thermometers Reading Different Temperatures

So my little Fluker thermometer has been reading 100F recently and I thought there was no way it could be that high so I bought a little Accurite window thermometer from Lowe’s and put it in there at the same height. The highest temperature the Accurite recorded was 90F. Which one should I be referring to? Should I be using something different altogether? I like the Accurite one so far because it measures the lows at night and suctions to the glass in Leo’s enclosure. I was actually gonna buy another one today...

I don’t like the ones that aren’t digital... I Did not find them to be very accurate. Even with the digital ones you will find a degree or two difference between the Same ones though.
