By your guesstimation, or are you using a thermometer to measure temps? If you're not using a thermometer (preferably digital, not one of those round dial ones from the pet store), then you really don't know if your temps are good or not. "It doesn't seem too hot" really doesn't cut it. Think about it - our bodies are at 98.6 and we can take a shower in water much hotter than that. But even a BP doesn't need a temp over 95 & most colubrids need a lower temp than that. So what may not "seem" too hot to you, might very well be too hot for them.
