First baby just hatched, one of Lupe's from 5-20. Not sure when, but I noticed at about 4AM. I set up the starter tank with paper towels instead of sand and half-toilet-tube caves instead of rock caves, but besides that it's pretty much just a small version of an adult's setup. The basking light isn't on yet, because it's on a 7AM to 10PM timer, but when it does click on I'm worried the warm spots may be too high up (about six inches.) Do they need to work their way up to jumping and climbing, or is it pretty much an imediate skill? Would it be a good idea to put an UTH under one corner of the floor, just in case?
