Thanks Brad for the great advice,

Our basement is completely below ground, so it's always relatively cool. In the summer it could climb to at 85 degrees, but at night it would drop. I was more worried about the low humidity in winter. Seems like providing a bathing spot and a humid shelter is good enough.

In winter the basement stays at an even 70 degrees always. Would I need to run the heat lamp at night? Could I alternate that with a heating rock at night?

Finally, I'm getting conflicting advice on good bedding materials. Is there a recycled newspaper bedding that works well? I've read that sand mixed with soil works best, but I'm concerned that might make the basement musty.

If someone can recommend a good breeder in or near New York City, I would gladly give a call.

Mike C
