    Default Variegatus Question


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello all,

    I am new to the forum and new to being a herp owner as well. I have a male variegatus (Goku) that I found in my garage here in AZ and I have him set up in a 10 gal tank with a UTH and thermostat that keeps the warm side regulated at 90 deg F. The cool side is between 78-83 during the day and around 75-78 at night. It has been pretty hot here in AZ recently (110-118 ), but he has been hanging out in his warm hide most of the time. Does he need a higher temp because he is used to the triple digit heat in the wild? He seems normal and he is stalking and eating his prey (crickets) just fine, but he stays close to his warm hide.

    I have been doing as much research as I can to provide a comfortable space for Goku. I appreciate any suggestions from the experts!

    TIA,
    mSuj

    No it does not need to be hotter. In the wild, when temps are triple digits, Banded geckos are hiding underground or under cover to escape the heat. They are active at night, when it is cooler.
    They should have a slightly moist hide box.

    Ok thanks. I have a warm hide, cool hide and a moist hide with damp moss inside.
