They have somewhat settled down. Does that scratching claws on
newspaper drive anyone else nuts?
It was hairy when I turned out the overhead last night and it signaled
the leopards to emerge. There was alot of "staring down". They
settled-in but the beardeds don't take absolute cover at night as they
did. There is a definite vertical gradation the leopards on the
bottom. And I'm sure that the leopards with their fastidious bathroom
habits don't appreciate the beardeds droping at will.
I have already found 2 beardeds perched on the top of the perimeter of
the tank [there isn't a cover] but no further. But 1 incident occured
when they were separate.
The leopards are recovering [1:4] from egg laying. But I don't see any
adversity. I'm concerned that the heat pad along with overhead is too
warm for the gex and shut down the heatpad. The male is a magnificent
high-yellow specimen [brought in to make babies but I'm not a good
incubator. It was gratifying to see him lapping water out of the a dish
[with liquid reptocal added email me for exact description] for a good
10 minutes. They do seem to need the water.
In sum, so far, it seems a logistics solution although managing the
heat/light is more time-consuming.
