    Smile #156---UVB Weekly Feeding & Supplement Schedule 156 for leos 18 months old +

    Here goes:

    UVB Weekly Schedule 156 for Leopard Geckos 18 months old +
    (with UVB)

    When your leopard gecko is taking advantage of appropriate UVB rays, Dr. Fran Baines (vet & lighting guru) strongly recommends a backup dose of powdered D3 @ 1 feeding per month! Just substitute D3 calcium for plain calcium dusting that week only.

    Smile #157---Providing UVB for shade dwellers like leopard geckos......EF -- June 2019

    UVB and heat go hand in hand. Place your UVB bulb or tube directly above the warm end of your gecko's enclosure. Place the fixture directly upon the enclosure's screen top rather than at some angle. That way your gecko receives full benefit of the valuable rays. I've not read about minimum temps which facilitate UVB absorption.

    When providing UVB for shade dwellers like leopard geckos, Dr. Fran Baines (DVM and lighting guru) recommends a backup dose of a powdered D3 supplement @ 1 feeding per month.

    In 2018 Arcadia developed ShadeDweller lighting.

    UVB output of all bulbs and tubes weakens over time! Follow the manufacturer's recommendation for replacing that bulb or tube. If you wish to check the output on your own, purchase a Solarmeter 6.5R (or equivalant) to measure the UV Index.

    Smile #158---Gaze following in an asocial reptile (E. macularius) -- March 2019 pdf

    "Gaze following is the ability to utilise information from another’s gaze. It is most often seen in a social context or as a reflexive response to interesting external stimuli. Social species can potentially reveal utilisable knowledge about another’s future intentions by attending to the target of their gaze. However, in even more fundamental situations, being sensitive to another’s gaze can also be useful such as when it can facilitate greater foraging efficiency or lead to earlier predator detection. While gaze sensitivity has been shown to be prevalent in a number of social species, little is currently known about the potential for gaze following in asocial species. The current study investigated whether an asocial reptile, the leopard gecko (Eublepharis macularius), could reliably use the visual indicators of attention to follow the gaze of a conspecific around a barrier. We operated three trial conditions and found subjects (N = 6) responded significantly more to the conspecific demonstrator looking up at a laser stimulus projected onto an occluder during the experimental condition compared to either of two control conditions. The study’s findings point toward growing evidence for gaze-following ability in reptiles, who are typically categorised as asocial. Furthermore, our findings support developing comparative social cognition research showing the origins of gaze following and other cognitive behaviours that may be more widely distributed across taxonomic groups than hitherto thought."
