I don't take him out, he comes out when he wants to. His door is always open. I keep his house at least 85 degrees F at the top of his shell height. He has a Stanfield heat mat with plenty of unheated floor space to get off the mat so he can self regulate his body temperature. He has has had free roam for several years now and knows when to go back in to warm up. As I write this it's 34 F outside and his house is 87 to 89 F shell top temperature from back of the house to the door.
Oh, thanks very much the explanation. Appreciate it.

The snow is still hanging about from this past weekend’s snowstorm with temps hanging at or below freezing.

I took the opportunity to go out for a nice kayaking adventure on the West River, just south of Annapolis (Maryland). A brackwish water reserve that hosts a lot of wonderful wildlife and feeds the great Chesapeake Bay.

We are having a very sloppy weather day started with snow about 5am this morning, Then switched to lite rain about 9 with temps just above freezing. Been raining since. I was hoping Walker would stay in his house, But no, He came out about 2 and was ready to eat. He has a daily routine and most days he sticks to it. Yesterday I cut some cactus pads just in case he did come out.He was happy with just getting the cactus and a romp around the yard and went back in in less than a half hour. I was happy to because I was getting soaked hand feeding him the cactus.Picture 001.jpg Picture 003.jpg

Does that mean that wathever the temperature they can be allowed outside as long as they have acces to their warm shed? Won’t that cause some kind of cold or R.I. Because I tought my sully would only be able to go outside a small part of the year but when I see those pictures it makes me think she’ll be able to go outside most year.

I’ll defer to Len - but, compare your outside temps to Len’s area in the Northern Neck of Virginia. Yes, it snowed, but today it’s going to be near 60, it might even be warmer in Len’s area. I’ll bet his snow is all gone this morning - sun is up, and rewarming the (not frozen) ground. I’m guessing your QC ground is frozen .... doesnt defrost and warm up on “warm” sunny days?

Also - Walker is probably 100 lbs (give or take). Lots of mass....holding heat, walks about, poses for his pix, some cactus, then back inside.

Here’s what our area looks like today...

That was a few hours ago. Right now...I’m seeing robins taking baths in melted snow streams in our back garden, green grass etc.

The pictures are beautiful. But my body says aches and pains. I miss the snow sometimes.
