Thanks a lot for answering! Lumichrome bulbs are unfortunately not distributed in Europe; the only solution is to order - in the U.S. - a batch of 27, which is a bit beyond my needs. Still, I was suggested by a friend to switch from Reptisun 5,0 to ReptiGlo 10,0 (by Exoterra). This, coupled with a good day-ligt tube, was connected to an electronic ballast, and both tubes were fitted with a reflector. The trick IMMEDIATELY triggered a much better feeding answer from my female Desert-Striped.
Another question concerning your Sonoran: is there any substance in the statement by Mara (questionable reference, I know), saying this species is reluctant to consume small mammals?
