    Taking cues...

    So aside from the care sheets, how much do people vary enclosure parameters based on activity? I've got 2 small Hermanns in a 5x2x2 closed chamber and have noticed activity is down since dropping temps to a normal range, 78 cold end, 84 warm end, 110 basking spot (it's hot but they use it...

    This place is hopping! (Quite un-tortoise-like!)

    Recently picked up a pair of baby Dalmatians, so I have to catch up on the hobby. Inherited a Sulcatta many years ago that I had for awhile... that sucker was a heavy 12"er... way different from my new little guys. Matt from New City, NY... Architect.
