 Lowest nightime temperatures for Argus

How low can I allow the temperature to drop before negatively affecting my varanid’s health?

well that depends on a lot, the length of time its dropped, how quickly it drops and how low it drops, you want to keep it at at least 80 tho

Agree I keep my monitors at 75-80 with an infrared night bulb just because the temps drop at 70 and under, its getting cold where I live. Btw yaksha have you gotten back with keeping monitors?

I am truly sorry to hear that.
it’s never easy losing part of the family

I am just fine, we set up a beautiful memorial above her grave. i am just hesitant to devote so much more of my time to another monitor at the moment. I am an all in heart and soul person, and i am not ready to make that commitment again at this time. one day tho.
