Noah... I think your husbandry has been fine as well.

Since you have the rheostat and the uth back in place my advice would be to dial the uth down and then do as you always do... watch how the hondo responds. If it uses the hot spot dial it up a little more... at some point he may give up using that spot as you've noticed before, when he does simply dial the rheostat back down to the point where he was using the spot. Personally think the ambient temps you have are more than adequate.

As far as feeding... I'm guessing you're doing the once a week schedule since Friday is feeding day. My advice is the same I always give... if your hondo attacks the prey item hard and fast either double up or feed every five days. I don't have a set schedule for feeding... it's always based on how the snakes responded at the last feeding.

Gerry
