Thank you sir, and I don't mind being a pain in the hind end. As you have seen, parts does indeed work for hogs, they seem to be easy. The nesting I showed was good for hard to nest types as well. Please understand I go, more then, because most people will do less then. I have never had a person go larger, or hotter then I recommend. So I start with too large or too hot. Ok that's silly but true.
About the temps, it may be because of a heatpad or tape. Burrowing reptiles do not sense heat in one spot or like we do. They are looking for areas of constant temps. Heat tapes and pads, drop degrees quickly. that is, each inch away is a lower temp. They want a whole area to be a set temp.
I do not know why, but I do have guesses. I thing the surface transmits heat like a heat pad. They are looking to get areas below that level where temps vary so much. Ok, take the good parts of that and go.
