My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and Reptile Rescue.

The Virtual assist did not ask what type of reptile you have.

Can you tell me about the set up?



UVB light, linear tube or compact coil, strength?

Temps in basking area, warm side and cool side?

Hello and welcome. I apologize for all the confusion you have experienced. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with a special interest in birds. Unfortunately, all the correct information was not gathered by the virtual assistant. What kind of bird is Lilly? Has she been hand fed or are the parents feeding her? What foods? At what temperature is she being kept? Thank you.
