good point. i'd go for the mid-up 90s for a baby for basking, make sure there is the temp gradient so they can get away from the heat.

:110-115 degrees is too high for hatchlings, its just right for adults but hatchlings need about 80-95 F but juveniles can handle up to 110 F at a DTL (Day Time Low) of about 75 F and night time temps should be around 75- 80F

: :I have been planning on getting some frills for awhile now. I even have mealworm and roach colonies going for them and my other reptiles.
::I will get one or two 3-4 week olds and set them up in 10 gallon aquariums. I'm gonna get a 10 gallon that I can set on the side so they can climb.
::I plan on using a uv bulb and a 75 watt heat lamp for the heat, with the hot spot around 110F-115F. I will have a water dish feed dish branches for them to climb on with newspaper substrate I will probably also put a humid hide in if I can.

::I will build probably a 4x4x4 size for when there adults later on.

::Can they handle temps in the 70's at nightime or do they need to be heated over 80 constantly?
::How fast do they grow? How long before they will out grow there 10 gallon and later on a 60 gallon?

::Sorry for so much I just love frills and reptiles so much, and want to make sure everything is good.
::Thx
