So the past week, Stinkpot has discovered basking. Started just with a head.. then half a shell.. now he comes out completely! He got even braver today! Came out of the water to bask, while I was sitting right next to him... just happened to be videoing on my phone too :gasp: Never thought I...
Please can someone give me some advice. I have a baby map turtle, maybe 2 months old. He used to bask under his proper basking light for ages every day but now he has stopped. His basking light is a stand alone lamp so I have to take his lid off for him to use the basking light...

my beardie didnt get on well with a side mounted bask light but since swapping to one in roof of viv (18 inches tall), his bask behaviour normal again . only thing is , it is "10-"12...
