Yo varanusarus, I've never heard of you either, what species have you had a "semblance" of reproductive success with?
I'd like to think that 19 years and hundreds of hatchlings of 5 generations with this species is just a step above a semblance of success, but I'll admit I still have a lot to learn and a long way to go.

I've had as many as 14 adult dumerils in my care at one time and can tell you those tail lengths are average. I'm not sure if basking temps have anything to do with tail length

I offer basking temps of about 120F, I used to offer 150F but this species never basks at those temps, 110 is about the most they'll bask at if very gravid or having a large food bolus. Mostly they hang around at 90F and will bask for short periods at 110, so I offer just above what they need. I offer my beccarii and olivaceus 140 as they use it.
Best.
