    Default UV index readings for uroplatus? (looking for phantasticus and fim)


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I just bought a solar meter 6.5

    I reached out toTodd Goode sent me a ferguson zone chart for various species and their UV index needs, though uroplatus are not listed on this chart.

    I found a post by a Lee Warren in the Uroplatus group on Facebook. He visited Madagascar in 2014 and took light meter readings near ambanja.

    He showed a reading by a Uroplatus in shade at 1.2

    He walked through and took a video while taking readings showing 0.2 in shade up to 8s on the video and said he took readings as high as 13.7.

    I wonder if ambanja readings would be similar to the east coast homegrounds of fimbriatus and phantasticus?

    I am also look for general resources and advice on solar meter 6.5 use and index readings for various species.

    Thanks everyoneDSC_2458.jpg
    1.1 fimbriatus adults ,
    1.1 juvie fimbriatus,
    1.1 phantasticus
    0.2 leopard geckos
    And then there's the non-gecko babies...
