    Re: why is he choosing his cold side hide over hot side?

    I had the same concern about mine, being that i've only had him for about a month and he spends only one of 7 days a week on the hot side.
    I just let him be and let him run his course. He's one hell of an eater, so I wasn't overly concerned.

    On the other hand... He's becoming a bit more skiddish... and THAT is what has the wheels in my head turning.

I've even lowered the warm side to 88 and switched the (identical) hides.. still stays on the cool side, lol. If your temperatures are good then I don't see any reason to worry. If he needed to warm up, I'm sure he'd go to the warm side.
