His basking spot it 104 degrees although he rarely sits there for very long. He visits it mainly in the morning when he wakes up. His Reptisun 10.0 is mounted inside the enclosure which also provides heat from the fixture. His cage is 4' long so the gradient is 90 degrees just off the basking spot which is where he spends most of his time, going down to about 78 degrees at the far end. I use newspaper so no chance of ingestion. He did tire of crickets so I switched to superworms and now to waxworms. I will see if I can switch back to crickets again. He does eat alot of salad and I believe that herbivores generally do not poop as often. He is no distress and does not strain and does not look bloated. He bobs alot and is very alert. When he does poop it is large but soft and stinky I clean it up right after I find it. His cage is kept clean at all times as when I took him he was sitting in his own crap and it was disgusting. I am going to change the room around so he can't see my uromastyx and see if that will help at all. Please let me know if something seems wrong from my set-up. Also, let me know if I should soak him more than 2 times per week. He does have blast during soaks.

Thanks so much. This pic is the day I adopted him.
Linda
