Re: Thermostat probe position?

A couple HUGE red flags there!!!

1) No tape anywhere in the enclosure!!!! PLEASE REMOVE IT IMMEDIATELY!!! Snakes can/ WILL get to it. The results will NOT be good. I've seen scales and skin ripped off, I've seen spinal injuries and even death caused by tape INSIDE an enclosure snapping the snakes neck.

2) the probe goes OUTSIDE the enclosure, sandwiched between the UTH and the glass. If it's INSIDE the enclosure it can be moved, peed on, etc...which can cause inaccurate readings and dangerous heat spikes.
