I am presently experimenting with fan-cages, in the past I did use larger fans in my condro and emerald room, however when iv stop using open tops and fans my production was not affected, but this doesnít mean much, especially sins I made no observations in this sense at the time.

I am convinced that air movement acts in the thermoregulation process, at what level? I donít know, is it necessary for our captives? Again I donít know.
However I do know that without experimentation no progress will be made.

Also what makes you think the oxygen level in blood cells would vary depending on microclimate?
Only altitude changes the oxygenation process, saturation has very little impact.



Heat transfer oxygen from water molecules of the lugs to feed the blood protein.
A well hydrated habitat will only favour this transfer.
The increased hart rate and oxygenation allows these lizards a brighter coloration.

I invented my thermal cages on the basis of atmospheric pressure, a high pressure habitat has opposite effects then high altitude, in higher altitude your blood oxygen levels drops, at sea levels its 84-90% when inhaling pure oxygen its 100%, when in a high pressure chamber you can quadruple your blood oxygen level.

How this affects my husbandry?
Well not so simple to explain, however picture a cage 2-2-2feet with little ventilation, heat this cage with a low energy 25w bulb 10-12h a day, you create higher pressure, not much but enough to allows all cardio respiratory functions and alleviate pressure on eggs. Les pressure helps the vascular system in both female and eggs. Better blood circulation, better growth and overall health.

Pleas keep me informed on your husbandry and success, I find this most interesting.
