Here is best underlid pict. I could get of his UVB
Ok so the bulb is a good one but your gonna haft to read the writing on it I cant see it --- its a Zoo Med so if you could read the writing on it it will say T 5 or T 8 please look -- as far as the lidocaine I cannot answer that question - you need to have Tracie or maybe AHBD can answer I will flag to the both of them -- @AHBD @Drache613

Ok on the inches and I believe the bulb is due for a change. It is a little over 6 months. Closer to 7. I think I had info that suggested switching out at 6. Is that correct?

I also read where you had suggested a towel instead of his hammock..He hates change of any sort. Will switching that be as difficult for him to handle stress wise as the hamster hammock o had tried earlier? Just in your opinion..I'm sorry I have so many questions.

You might put the hammock on top of the towel at first, then take the hammock out after about a week. And no Lidocaine, it might be an irritant of some sort and their scales are not absorbent like our skin is anyway. The uvb placement is good, but it probably will need changed soon.

You're welcome ! :) I hope your boy will be O.K, he may be in discomfort but not actual pain or may have no pain, just lack of mobility.

Thank you. I believe he is in some pain. It almost sounds like he us letting out a little puff of air if you aren't super careful how you handle him. Then there's the twitching of his hindleg. He has difficulty getting his balance on occasion as well. He seems so uncomfortable.😭😭
