    It's always pretty warm in here, but she's on top of the fridge, so basically on top of the freezer. There's also a window nearby. 77F air seems fine (that's what it's hangin tough at) *edit* 72F not 77F. but there was no place for her to go to get a little extra warmth. I just enlarged her vent holes on lid with a scissor blade, sliced myself up on the plastic, but I hope this helps with ventilation and less condensation. Worked for my roaches. She's back in her burrow now, on the side without heat mat.

    This allows you to measure the surface temperature of the substrate and not just the air. You can actually hold the button down and move it around and you'll see the temperature change in real time. Very useful for anyone trying to provide a specific belly heat to his/her critters. (I have leopard geckos too and wanted to make sure their warm side of the habitat was exactly 90 degrees.)
    I looked that up too, and can get one for $9.99 new. Seems like a smart buy. Thanks!

    I was searching to see what a healthy weight would be for my female american toad and saw your post saying yours was 43g. Compared to my whooping 152g, i think one of ours is either under or OVER weight. Lol
