lol, id rather look then dream
One of our het females....
Our Olives like a nice hot basking spot, they get right up close to our heat panels. Using a temp gun under them they reach high 30's right where the snakes like to sit.
As for feeding - while they are growing let them smash the food down and feed every 6-8 days. As a general rule they should be shedding every 6 weeks if you've got the feed sizes right (if they are shedding quicker then your giving them to much, any longer then about 8 weeks then you need to up their feeds). Pretty much the youngsters put all their energy into growning lengthwise and not girth
Every one of our Olives are inquisitive, gentle when out of their cages and absolutely awesome...bloody good feeders to and pretty easy to look after!
Hope you get as much joy from yours
