You haven’t heard of night boxes because you haven’t read the care sheet. This is why it was important to read it when it was linked to you last month on the other thread. It talks at great length about this. Without a temperature controlled night box, your tortoises should be housed in their respective indoor enclosures at night. They could stay indoors during the day if it’s too cold outside for them as well. Regardless, because they aren’t adults they should be indoors at night, but if you insist on keeping them outdoors, their best chance at surviving is with a night box.Really? I have never heard of that! Ok well I will do the best I can right now to get them warm. I just hope they will be ok for a little while until I get the night box. Is there anything else I can do in the mean time?
You previously mentioned the female hatched 2 years ago. This is not close to being an adult. The occasional night at these temps might be ok IF they have a lot of warmth during the day to warm up. Consecutive days and nights of temps in the 50’s with no way to warm up is a recipe for disaster.In the link you gave me it said that adult tortoises can tolerate temperatures in the low 50's and 60's and right now the lowest temperature it is supposed to be is 55f so my tortoises should be fine. Right? Becuse they are almost adults.
As far as I know, you can’t buy it anywhere. You have to construct it yourself as shown in the care sheet. If you do some searches on the forum for night boxes, Tom has a lot of more in depth information regarding the construction of them which you might find helpful.And do you know where I can get this temperature controlled night box?
