Pogos not helping with environmental studies and adjustment

Postby Mwcrf450r » Sun Oct 06, 2019 1:22 pm

So my wife gave Pogo a bath while I cleaned and adjusted his tank a bit. I didn't like how cluttered it seemed on one side as he had his basking tree and his log hide on the hot side of his viv. I made some other small adjustments and waited to let the temps rise to where they need to be. The cool sides staying right about 79.3-80 but there's still a small amount of evaporation going on so I'll check it out again in a bit. The hot side was up to 106.3 when I left the room. Hes still young so I'm aiming for 110. I come back and the temps down to 95.4! Turns out he knew where to go to dry off and warm up after his bath -.- lol
Side note: I geuss I forgot to tell my wife there's a decent chance he may poo during bath time XD
Side side note: For the first time ever he actually gulped some of his bathwater before he used it as a toilet which makes me extremely happy as I'm always worried hes not getting enough fluids:)[Click image to enlarge]

Pogos set up looks nice -- are you using a tube UVB for him?

Ok great --- if you get tired of cleaning up the carpet you can look for some textured non adhesive shelf liner from your home improvement store --- its easy to clean w/ vinegar/ water in a spray bottle 50/50 -- and insects cant get underneath

I always am also oddly satisfied when they drink in the bath lol. None of my guys do that right now.

I found that mine will drink water on her own accord if I first put a couple drops on her head.
