touche' In your Mar 2214:00:44 post you referred to me as "she", I was just returning
the favor. Based on what I read, its becoming clear that you base you basking temp on the ambient temp of the home island. So how does an adult cyclura keep an average body temp at 100-105 on a island that averages about 84 degrees?
Core temps are measured by sticking a thermometer probe in the vent of the lizard because measuring the skin has been deemed unreliable in the scientific community
fortunately most of those temp have been documented.
