In Reply to: Where do you put your probe? posted by Randy27 on May 04, 2003 at 00:37:39:
:it would depend on the species' habits. If they are primarily ground dwellers, probe the bottom (and so on).
::Where in the tank do you guys put the end of your probes for the temp/Humidity gage? I wondered how different the stats would be if the probs would be moved. Would it be considerably colder on the floor vs. at the top of the tank near the light and so on?
::My probes are at the top of the tank, and the stats now for 2 days that the tank has been closed and new frogs inside has been:
::consistently at 99% RH, and 72-78 F.
:As warm air rises, even in your terrarium, the temps at the top of the enclosure should be warmer than those on the floor. I agree that it depends on where your frogs spend most of their time. You will want to get an accurate reading from the level that they are most active in. With tinctorius and other groung species it would much more beneficial to place the probe on the floor of the enclosure and the opposite for a species of tree frog. Hope this helps.
