I have a question, my sulcata tort is 4 and stays outside in her huge enclosure. The temp here in Phoenix is warm during the day but at night the temperature drops to around 54 degrees. My question is; should I still be using a heat lamp at night?

Yes! I hope she has a night box to go into at night. It should be kept at least 80 degrees on a thermostat. When the temperatures fall at night you will have to put her in her night box if she hasn't gone in on her own.

Hi Chrissy , a heat lamp is probably not your best option . a "pig blanket" would be much better ! Looks like this ;
