Hello and welcome. I apologize that no one responded to you sooner. Different experts come online at various times. I just logged on and so your question. The expert you originally requested was not available. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with a special interest in reptiles. If you still need help, some additional information will be useful. The 'virtual assistant' you interacted with in the beginning did not ask the right questions.What kind of reptile is Falcor?What brand and size of UVB light do you have?What do you feed him? Any supplements?What temperatures do you maintain under the basking light and on the cool side of the enclosure?Thank you.
