    My cage is 6ft tall 6ft long 4ft wide. What should be the correct temperature in the cage? I currently have 30-32 degrees at the top and 22-28 at the bottom. Max humidity I have is 80. How many bulbs of sunlight should I have and what should the wattage be. Currently I have one 150 watt sunlight bulb. I have two 5.0 UVB bulbs as well and a 100 Watt night light. Should I have more sunlight bulbs
    for the size of my cage and how many watts, I don't want to burn my iguana. Thanks for any help you can give

    I believe he is talking about a green iguana.

    Pictures of the cage, and exact type, wattage, and manufacturer. A lot will depend on how you have the basking/climbing areas set up, and what bulbs you actually have and how they're placed in the cage.

    Home Made Iguana Cage June 2014 - YouTube There are 3 lights in the front,two are UVB 5.0 and the one in the middle is sunlight 150 watts. The bulb in the back is 100 Watt night light. It is a green iguana, female. Do you think I should add more UVB or UVA lights or can she get burned.

    Nice looking enclosure. I think you have enough light. And for the records, a UVB bulb also puts out UVA.
    I would suggest swapping those analog gauges out for a digital.

    Yeah the only thing I saw wrong was the analog thermometer/hygrometer..... Need a nice digital one....
