Interestingly enough for us - Last winter when we bred our brongersmai we provided a warm spot of 82 degrees F. Not one gravid female out of 4 ever spent a moment that I could see on that heat. When I would IR temp them, they were always between 72-75 degrees.

This year, I pulled some males to check on them as we were starting to pair them up. The IR temp reading were 70-72 degrees. The hotspot is 78 and even after feeding they never spend time on the heat.

The above cases are animals in cages of 3' and 4'.

All of our sweater box and shoebox animals have the heat set at 78 and due to housing size don't get the opportunity to cool down as much as the caged animals.

No sicklies, and no missed meals. Nice lean machines :O)

BTW - hi Harlin, hope all is well!!!
