My engineer fiance would love this!! :) Superior work!

Thank you.

It works exactly as designed. Lets them have a nice temperate climate temperature drop every night, but not down into the 30s where they want to go back into hibernation. We've been having days near 80F, so I've got the thermostat set to keep night temps 60-65. It seems to agree with them. They come out every day and bask in the sun, then forage and roam around, and then they retire to their night boxes at night.

That's so awesome. I wish I could quit my cubicle job and build tortoise enclosures and structures for a living. That would be possibly the coolest job EVER. :D
