The hot spot is 104???? You are keeping them too hot..... The warm side of the tank should be no more than 85 and a cool side should be between 70 and 75...... Humidity should be at 70%..... If you keep them too hot you WILL kill them...... Cool them dowm alittle My gaboons NEVER bask under the heat light for mor than 5 minutes a day..... Some times they go days without going under the light...... Heat pads are not my thing but some people like them..... It is not a natural heat source..... I give my snakes top heat only..... Also they need to be soaked atleast once a week to keep the hydrated..... put them in yheir water basin every once in a while and mist them down often...... They need the humidity and they need to drink on a regular basis..... Let me know how everything works out.....
