the lamp in the shed is on all day, unless its really warm. They normally come out for a while then go back in for a warm. Then back out.

I have oinked all mine out this lunchtime. And they gathered under the outside heater and then had a munch and went back. I am trying to keep them up another month or so. And working hard at it. Last year Georgia was trying to hibernate about now. But she is reasonably active at the moment x x x hugs x

Mine have all been out today, other than the Russians. It's important that they have a natural substrate to go onto, as tortoises will not willingly leave their hides for unnatural areas if they have a hide with heating. I used lamps set on spring settings today and have had lots of eating, mating and other normal torty behaviour. We've got good weather forecast here for this weekend too, so hopefully they will get the boost they need to keep going a bit longer - good news for my charity event this weekend too. Woohoo - sunshine galore :)
