Thanks for the details. The basking temp is o.k, this is a very small monitor just now and will heat up very quickly. It`s best to offer a range of surface temps at the basking site @ approx 50 to 60c (120 to 140f), and make sure the area is large enough to heat the whole body at least. Yes, you can offer slightly higher. Those temps will allow the monitor to function very efficiently. The difference in the time it will take between for example 120 and 130f for your monitor to reach activity levels would literally be few seconds. The larger the monitor the longer it takes to heat up and the longer it takes to cool down, and obviously vice versa (so easy)!
