Hello, my name is Kathleen from Florida. My mother has given me custody of her tortoise, Hatch. She's 8 years old and beautiful. Her home with Mom was in California, she was flown to me over night and is adjusting it seems well here in FL. Our weather is much warmer during the year, and during the summer quite humid. I don't want her to over-heat and was hoping I could get advice, other than the usual, "she loves her showers", and making sure she has adequate shade. She will and does live outside at the present, other accommodations will be made if/when we have colder weather, which isn't often. Is a fan ok for constant air flow, or misters, any advice is most helpful, thank you.
