Hi!

I'm not sure how to get Josie enough UVB exposure. Even though her UVB light is on, she is always under her hide.
What should I do?

Need more info. A pic of enclosure would help too.
Need to know temps day, night, basking.
What is the humidity?
What type of lighting are you using?

— Temps during day under basking light: 90-95
— Humidity: 50-60
— Right now I’m using a Reptisun T5 5.0. I’m waiting for my Acardia 12% bulb to come this week! It

Her cool spot is 70 degrees.
She also has a ceramic heat emitter at night to keep her enclosure around 65 (lowest)-75 degrees.
