Thank you for the response! I think you are right. I am going to make a chart of the yearly weather patterns and daylight for Mediterranean Egypt (where Eumeces schneideri is from). I may not have gotten it perfect this year, but there's always next year. Ideally I'd have a cooler where I could incrementally cool the animals over the winter.

I have been keeping herps for 15 years but only actively focusing on breeding for the last four and the more I learn the more I realize how challenging reptile keeping can be!!! I keep thinking, why couldn't I have chosen birds or mammals or invertebrates for a hobby?
