Hi Chany,

Many people on here will have their own way of doing things, mainly depending on where they are in the country and how old their torts are.

Personally, I have both heating and lighting in my outdoor enclosure. Heating set at daytime/night time temps and a UV bulb (Reptisun 2) which comes on in the morning to wake them - if you get the sun on them first thing though you might just need it to come on later.

A lot depends on how old yours are and when you are looking to bring them in at the end of the summer.

Others will be along in a short while to offer some great advice.

Sorry I cant be more helpful.

At the moment mine don't have any additional heat/light. I'm in sunny surrey though and in all fairness we do get better weather here :rolleyes: even today when it's been cold and damp I've seen some of them eating.
