    So I'm setting up an enclosure for the juvy rainbow boa that im getting next week and i want to make sure the hottest part doesn't go above 85, but where exactly should i put my heat probe to measure surface temps? I'm not gonna put it in between the mat and the plastic but im unsure of whether I should put it in the substrate (not touching the plastic) and have it covered, or just let it lay on top of the substrate. Any thoughts?

    Also when i take surface temp readings my temp gun comes out at 91 degrees for the hottest part but when i put the prob on the hottest part it says 83 so im kinda confused on why its reading that
