Too Hot

I found out recently that I had been keeping my enclosure too hot, around 100 F on the basking side . I was using those cheap thermometers you stick to the inside of the cage. I now realise that the center of where the light is shinning is the hottest. I now use probe thermometers and they are fantastic! I can measue the temp in the center of where the light is shinning. I suggest that no one uses the ones you stick on the wall and I am lucky my animal never got burned.

Thanks for listening!
