I`m with you on this one, Steve....Also; (Quote) "They are well equipped to handle cold, and actually it is best for them"?? That`s not true at all, cold is extremely BAD for them! I think you mean a drop at night is good, I agree with that! This animal needs building up, so if he wants to feed before going to school in the morning, the animal needs to be "warmed up" quite early in the day! You were asking about another lamp.... You could get a 40watt bulb which will increase the temps a little....Try a normal household bulb and see how much it raises the temp.
