I don't know what you mean here. Please your info out in complete sentences with punctuation.

24c is too cold for a sulcata. 65% humidity is on the low side. What is the "97" in reference to? Heated water pond? May we see a pic of the enclosure? That will give us some insight.

The most common issue with this species is that people tend to keep them too cool and too dry.

Our tort probably only spends about 4 hours grazing the property, walking the perimeter for intruders/mates and retreats to his massive burrow or under a trailer. I would imagine in the wild that they are only active as they need to be to eat and mate?

If be interested to know how long people who keep their torts outside to free roam property actually spend on the move.
