George, the best tortoise in the world (according to our family), is a 6yo cherry foot tortoise. However, George has outgrown his 2x3 enclosure. So he routinely, like most days, is allowed to roam the downstairs common rooms during the day. He likes roaming, and hasn't really caused any problems. The first place he goes is to the dog food bowl, and gets stuck in it sometimes! But he LOVES being in the backyard. During the summer, that is easy. He just goes out with me while I garden, and darn if he isn't pretty quick to find someplace new to wander. He loves foraging under the pear trees! But since we need a new enclosure for him, and he loves being outside, and he's not a baby anymore....can you safely house a cherry foot outside in the mountains of TN. Temps get down to 10s at night and 30s during the day. I have seen enclosures that are quite large outside, with plants and little water soaks, and things to investigate. He would definitely have an insulated, heated hidey-hole. He just seems bored staring at his wood box. And an outside enclosure could be much, much larger than anything we do inside. Anyone else kept a cherry foot around Knoxville? OR what is the lowest temp range anyone has safely kept their friend outside? Thank you!
