A few question nearly my fresh lizard?
ok just got a new Schneider skink and i savour it very much . my question is i do have a uvb bulb for it so he can seize access to the uv rays but he buries under the sand a lot i have the hurricane lantern on for 12 hours a day is he getting enough exposure to uv rays if he is underneath the sand a lot?
also how the hell can he stay under the sand for like 20 mins at a time and still breathe?? and is he crawling underneath the sand because he is shedding or is this a normal behavior for them to do regardless?
He will be fine. It is in their nature to burrow, don't verbs about him not having enough exposure to the uvb/uva. I also will assure you, he can breathe.
