With Opo outside full time. I have his night box and a humid hide on the screen porch. I put down 4 washing machine drip trays side by side to make a square and using cypress mulch and coco coir for substrate. He gets plenty of outside time supervised because I still need to fence in the backyard. But with this heat we are having I don't let him stay outside for to long. When he is in the screen porch his hide can still be 90°. Should I put a small fan pointed in the direction of the hide to cool it down a little?

90 is on the high range.
But as long as there is shade, I'm sure you're fine.
I haven't seen mine much in a few days.
They hate this heat as much as we do.

Yeah he is in the shade. He loves grazing in the morning with the dew still on the ground. When it gets hot I can't get him to go outside. If he doesn't go to bed to early he will do a evening graze
