    If this was boy I would be tempted to call him ‘The Scarlet Pimpernel!’ She is certainly soaking up the rays. What brand of light is that?

        I leave it on 24/7 and it last a couple months. Was buying from pet smart but found cheaper on Amazon.

        That is very good to know. I am a little surprised it only lasts a couple of months, but if it’s on all the time that makes sense. Most keepers recommend turning the light off for at least 10 hours very night. I am curious as to why you keep yours on all the time. Is it for the warmth?

        For heat. My wife keeps it pretty chilly in our house. But I take that back it does turn off with the daylights that I have on a timer.

        Oh that’s good. It is what most people do and it seems to work best for their lizard’s longevity. It is something that I do too. I do have an undertank pad for when I have reptiles (which I don’t right now), as in winter my house can get down to 55 degrees, which is WAY too cold for any self-respecting poikilothermic pet. But diurnal animals do like darkness at night. That pad makes everybody happy and healthy, with natural sleep cycle maintained.
