I agree with jf. I have more than 100 Cycluras and although adults are kept outside, I agree that the hot spot should be between 130 to 150. I was totally shock the other day when in the middle of a sunny day, I found more than half of my adult rhinos still in their attached houses and not outside. When I check the temperature of one of the house, it was 116 and they seem very comfortable. They have free choice to go in an out as they please and more than half decided that it was fine for them to stay in a house at 116. My only concern I have with this high basking spot is that the cage should be large enough so that iguana can fully get away from the hot spot to a cool area where it can be in the 80s. In this situation, they will choose their comfort zone. What jf is saying is that we should give them the choice to choose where they want to be, instead of leaving it up to "the human experts."
