    [attachment=6027]Unrelated post. Here is the pic you asked for. Sorry for the bad cell pic. This is my extreme hatched on 6/13 like your old one. That is a yardstick next to him. 37 inches nose to tip of tail when all stretched out basking. Sorry for taking so long sending the pic, but I was stuck doing Xmas stuff and I forgot. Did you find another one yet?

    6ft long, 3ft wide, 26in high. 8in of bedding. The enclosure could be a max height of 26in due to the width of the doorway it had to get through. He will move to a 12x12ft outdoor enclosure when the weather warms up. The 6x3 will be just used for hibernation next year. That pic was from this morning. He is not hibernating this year.

    I have it and love it. Works great for temp and humidity. But don't buy it expecting to be able to utilize the night time temp. It recognizes night time by a light sensor on the control unit, which I personally keep outside of the cage. So whenever I shut my room light off, it thought it was night time and dropped the temp. I turned it off. The work around to this would be placing it in the cage, but I wouldn't trust it lasting in high humidity.

    wow so i think im going to get it then, it seems legit, only thing that scared me was how it was so cheap for a device that sells for way more had me thinking of the old saying "you get what you pay for" but i think it might be worth it to get it and see what it can do.
