    You need to get rid of those analog dials and get you a good digital with a probe. The analogs are notoriously innaccurate.

    Also the placemet of your guages is not giving you the reading down where the lizards actually are. Heat rises so the temperature where your dials are may be drastically different than what is down on the bottom.

    Hi, is an Armadillo lizard a Cordylus species, as that`s a common name here in Europe and other countries?

    Hi again, I think it is a Cordylid, can you take a close-up pic, just to be sure? Thanks!
    Edit: I would advise using a smaller hide, in fact more than one is better, it should be nice and "snug" so the lizard feels secure. I`ll talk about substrate when I can identify the animal properly (I hope)!

    I have photos in the herp photo section! C: and i've always been afraid to use something too low that it'd crush the poor lizard! thanks I'll indeed find something a little lower to the substrate! C:
