    In your prior post, you said "93-96"- and no, the best thing is to prevent nerve damage. Once it happens, you're stuck with it, or rather, your snake is stuck with it. It's your job to keep your pet safe- after all, you're responsible for his confinement. In the wild, they go underground when it's too hot, but in a cage, our snakes have no chance to get away- no real option- if it's too hot.

    Re: Cypress substrate and UTH

    Duly noted, and I am certainly trying. I acknowledge that 93-96 is not acceptable, I hope that was clear from my previous post. What I find is that I'm often in reactive mode to get the temperatures either up or down out of the extremes. I'm checking 2-4 times a day depending on how close to the limits I am, just trying to find the right combination of settings to keep him comfortable and keep temps in a stable, acceptable range. I do hope he's not suffering in the process. The question about identifying nerve damage was not to try and find those boundaries, it's that given the trouble I've had maintaining them, I wonder if there's a way to detect if there's been some damage in the process.
