    Healthy, friendly and brave yellow foot baby! Stretched his neck out to touch noses this morning. Arrived two and a half days ago. Not great with the one handed photo focus yet...lol Bath Robe Time.JPG

    The only thing I can find locally in a UVB 5.0 is the Reptisun 5.0 UVB 13 Watt mini compact fluorescent. It isn't the spiral but it is awfully bright. The only fluorescent tube I can order on line from Amazon.ca is a UVB 3% and that will take weeks to get here. I did buy a small hostas that fits and planted it right in the middle so they have shelter from it if they wish. Also finally arrived is the ReptiRain so it is now "raining" inside the enclosure for 15 seconds every hour and that maintains the humidity in the low to mid 80s and the CHE maintains a heat of about 92 on the warm side and 82 on the cool side.
