    Repti-therm habitat heater......

    We got a Sulcata about a month ago. Kind of a random pet that my husband chose, but I absolutely LOVE Herman!!!! Even though he just stares at us, I can just see all the personality in him and can't wait til it all comes out. There are so many questions, that I don't even know where to start...
