Hey guys, so I just got a male veild, he about 3 inches in length. I have I have him in a flexarium, its about 4 feet by 2 feet by 2feet, anyways I have alot of fake plans and sticks to climb on, i have a fogger at the bottom of the enclosure that runs 12 hours a day and a dripper that runs 12 hours as well, I mist the cage for about 3 mins at a time twice a day, Now he eats and drinks like a champ, but my biggest question is latley he has been venturing to the bottom of the cage, not going on the ground at all but like sitting on the stick towards the ground, Is this normal ? and his temps are about 95 in his basking spot, 75 - 80 at the middle of the cage, and about 105 at very peek top stick, is this all okay anything i should know or need to fix, thanks for all the help ( I have a uvb bulb and uva ) ( Also dust crickets )

sounds like a lot of fogging. I would try and cut back a little

ooo that is not real good for them. The cool thing about vaild is that they will not over eat. I used to leave a container of crickets in the cage where he could get them but they could not get out.
