Parker woke up April 3. He seemed to be doing okay. Eating, drinking, pooping. I’ve been soaking him each day, almost every day and let him out in yard (completely fenced) for the warmest part of day. He was taking walks and grazing, but today, after eating and soak, He basked, then went to shade, then he just put his legs out like he’s tired. Not taking a walk. Should I be worried. Temps have just reached high 70s. Couple of low 80 days. It’s been windy. Currently 79 degrees. I swear I worry more abt him than I did my kids. He can’t tell me what’s up like they did. 🤔🤔🤷‍♀️

What are the overnight lows? Any heat sources for him or means of controlling the temps where he sleeps?

Overnight lows are just reaching 50-52 this week with one night 46. Imhave been having him sleep inside. I turn his lights off, so it’s just room temp which is prob 65-68ish
