This forum I think is the best out of all of them. We have a great bunch of knowledgeable people to contribute without the egos. I do believe you are right. I hibernated the animals too cold. I assumed they could take it and I was wrong. I have a good friend that used to breed a lot of petros, he also bred crotaphytus so I assumed he did them the same. I did not find out until after I killed the pair that he experienced the same thing and changed his plan to exactly the way you mentioned in your post. I will for sure do things different next season.

Also you heard right about the morning fog. I guess it completely engulfs the island in the morning. I also talked with the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum and they mist their outdoor enclosures daily from April to October.

A good place to get temps is Weather Underground wunderground.com. I have been monitoring for almost a month now for San Felipe, LaPaz and Guaymas and I don't think I saw the night temps under fifty and the day temps from 68-85F. I also check the Camp Gecko website that is located right on Bahia De LosAngeles. The Doc gives weather and fishing reports. He said this was an unually warm winter with highs regularly in the upper 70's and 80's.

Also Peter I will comunicate with you personally on some other info I need. Thanks again, Tom
