Is the heated substrate to help stimulate the egg laying... or to incubate the eggs after?
I want to stimulate and in courage the egg laying... but I know the eggs are not fertility and even if they were... I couldn't bring more Iguanas into this world knowing that most die within their 1st or 2nd year of life due to people not knowing how to care for them... Oi would worry to much about how my babies where doing... I could never give up may animals to anyone... and I know I could never care for 20-30 iggs... lol
So heat the egg box or not... ?
If so how do I provide heat to a plastic box with out melting it?
I thought about heat lamps directly on the sand and then putting the top on after taking the lights away... also... this box is pretty close to the room vent so that when the heat kicks in it can be warm...
