    Looking good, OP!

    I never thought of that. I have my new baby on top of my snake shelving, which is somewhat close to my heat vents in the basement, though not in its direct path. Definitely going to check temps there when I go home!! Thanks!

    I think it was more of an issue of not enough humidity in my case, but temp gunning that location would be a good idea too. I changed things up in my room and moved the shelving unit the geckos are on as far from the heater as possible and I bought a pump mister (easier to spray more cages) and spray religiously every day. I am also running a humidifier in the room, but am looking for a better model that will be easier to maintain. The humidifier can't hurt my snakes... I think it will benefit all of the critters in the room.

    Just make sure that you're misting fairly heavily and he should be fine.

    I am looking into buying a humidity gauge for the room as well, just so I can keep an eye on things.

    I only got the one gecko She just looks drastically different when fired up and fired down Thank you though! Also thank you for the warning, I will definitely keep her away from the drier parts of the house as well. But she shed off that old skin last night and is looking great!
