    I know some people recommend brumation for corn snakes, I have my corn over a year now and never tried it yet, mainly due to the fact I have no where to place him with ideal brumation temps. Currently my corn snakes cool side temps are between 18-20C, I heat with a ceramic heater and have a...

I would like to insert a picture to go with the following description but last time i tried adding a picture it did not work, if anyone can explain...

    Hello, I live in Scotland and the temperature is beginning to plummet! I have a lovely 3 year old corn snake, who is super healthy and curious:) However, I am slightly concerned about my temperatures, and I'm looking for some advice. I have a large wooden/glass vivarium, and I keep my...

    HI , I am setting up my new Vivarium for a bearded dragon and just wondered if someone could give me some feedback on these temperatures, its 4ft x 2 x 2 I am using an Arcadia 100w Basking Solar Flood basking bulb and that (and the UV light) is attached to a Microclimate Evo thermostat. I...

    Have not been able to find much on this forum regarding care of these, enclosure, heating, humidity etc...anything I could find is old. I had a look on some of the other forums but I always feel the standards here/EU are higher than most. Im looking into getting a male as my next snake. Anyone...

    So i'm picking up my first royal python in a little over a weeks time, but i'm currently having some trouble with the heating of my setup. I've modified a tub to use a CHE (added aluminium mesh to part of the lid, and have the CHE placed op top). I have a thermostat connected to the CHE, with...

    I've toyed with the idea of getting a leo before, however I opted to go for a corn snake instead at the time. I am however still considering one, I have recently acquired some free space in my sitting room, enough for a 4 x 2 x 2 vivarium. I'm a bit worried the room may be too cold though...

    Hey So I have an exo terra large flat faunarium that I currently use for a baby corn, however when he goes into his main viv It'll be free, I was thinking of using it for a tarantula. From my reading and research on T's heating can cause more harm than good so I'm looking for opinions on...

    I've been struggling to balance the temp gradient in my cali kings enclosure recently due to the weather. He's often stretched out hugging the front wall (if that's makes sense) and I've checked temps there which is 23.8c right now, the coolest part excluding maybe underneath the waterdish which...

    Hi all, Just wondering if any of you use a stat with a programmable night temp drop? If anyone here does I'm curious what you have your timings set to. Currently I have mine set to 9am-9pm at 28c and the night set to 21c. As it's currently set the warmest time is right before 9pm and takes a...

    Hya everyone. Can anyone recommend any reptiles (or amphibs or inverts) which are comfortable in temps of 90f+ ? I've got some small tanks at work which are on top of large tanks, so at the hot end the tank above is reaching 90+. The tanks are currently empty but looking to get some animals...

    So I have a few questions for you all if you don't mind... So onto the first. I just installed my heating setup for a king snake, ceramic bulb 150W. Have been tweaking the temps and noticed that a lot of heat is transferring through the top. I meant to get a reflector with it but forgot. Do...

    Hello all! I've been searching the net for a reptile community that can share knowledge and stories with me as I dip my toes into the world of herp keeping. Besides handling skinks in the wild when I was a child, I have no experience with these fascinating creatures. Currently I am the carer...

    Hi All, I've always measured my bearded dragons basking spot with a remote probe, the LTH-31 from Lucky Reptile and made sure the temperatures we between 40-44C. I've started working from home regularly and noticed that it's taking the basking spot quite a long time to get to this temperature...

    Im trying to get readings in my viv just before the habistat clicks on to heat up the viv and just after to gage basking spot temp and average temps all over. Are these the best times to get an acurate reading of a basking spot or is 10 mins after the habistat clicks off be better. Googled this...

    Hi all, Just after a bit of advice. I've just got a 7 month old corn snake and I'm fairly confident that I have got her terrarium set up correctly. I have a heat mat that covers almost half of the floor space and it's controlled by a habistat thermostat. This gives a nice temperature gradient...

    This is my first time posting in a forum so sorry if I don't give as much information as I should but I'll do my best. Basically, I have a 7y/o female cornsnake who for the past 2 months refuses to go to the warm end of her tank and won't eat. A bit of background - I rehomed this corn in July...

    Would just like to see how various tortoise owners check basking temps? Whether its with a stat (non combi bulbs) or stat? Be interesting to see different ideas etc :)

    Hello! I've been trying to setup a exo terra viv for a leopard gecko, luckily I don't have the gecko yet, but I'm hoping to get one at Doncaster this weekend so need to sort the temperature out asap. My setup is a heat mat on the underside of the glass, hooked into a 100w exo terra thermostat...

    Hi, I'd like to build an outdoor enclosure for savannah. The ambient temp is very low like 50F during winter. If I always keep an basking area like 113F, will the temp difference(113F-50F=63F) cause any problem? Or it is good enough? Thanks!
