UV and beardies (in wild)

Advanced discussions are those that are not necessarily for the general hobbyist, contains practices that should not be applied by those lacking experience, or may be for theoretical discussions that we do not want to have confused with recommended care.

But their body surface temp was 41.
And of course we dont know if they were seeking the shade for the uv protection or the cooler temps. Or both.

Anyways, body temp of 41c agrees with the study I posted awhile back too. :)

Another interesting thing to point out about the video - and everyone who has a 6.5 knows, small differences in placement can have a huge effect on UV exposure. You saw at first that in the sparse shade of the bush, the uvi was around 5. But him simply getting it a few inches closer into the shade quickly dropped it into the 2 range. It's too bad they didnt start the recording sooner to show exactly where the dragon was hanging out before they spooked him.

However I agree, would be cool for him to show more videos and data like this :)

Which showed a much higher heart rates (at 41 degC body temperature , which btw is somewhat higher then the POBT for bearded dragons ) , an indicator of thermal stress which is a point I made in the posts that "someone" deleted.

preferred operating body temperature ( is 36 degC for a bearded dragon ).

Looks like a great book, but I can't justify ~$120 (USD)! For that kind of money, it must be OOP. :(

Old school for me too, I like to have it and others in the collection handy with dogeared pages and sticky notes indicating relevant info for quick reference.

I've accumulated a very extensive personal library ( a 2 full walls floor to ceiling + 3 filing cabinets full ( overflow ) . I've never been one to sell my textbooks when I was finished a topic or subject , and accumulated more through interest and need to extend my knowledge over my career.

Some people (DW) would call that hoarding. The last time she ripped into me for it, I blankly stared past her into her "quilting area" (she's a quilter). She turned around and looked at the stacks of bins of fabrics, drawers of "fat quarters", cabinets of doodads, piles of assorted quilting paraphernalia, etc., etc., etc., then turned back to me and had the temerity to say, "That's different."

Uh-huh.

Considering many of these books cost $300 or more when I bought them originally and I've often had cause to refer to them in the course my career .
They are an asset worth keeping. Perhaps my grandson or maybe a grandnephew or grandniece might one day need access to them if follow me into a scientific or engineering career.
