Hey everyone,

What's the lowest you should let an Indonesian blue tongue skink go at night? I've got an outdoor enclosure and I'm just wondering when I should bring mine in and when it's ok to leave it outside.

I've had this Indonesian blue tongue skink for a few months now. I've noticed that this animal seems much more active when the temperatures are low. If the basking light is on, the animal is always hiding. When the light burns out, but the room lights are on, he is out and about in his cage. I've got an outdoor enclosure for him. When a storm comes through and the temp drops and there's cold rain, he's out staring up at the sky.

All of the care sheets I have read made me think I should have expected different behavior. Do the Indo BTS come from a slightly different climate or habitat than the more commonly bred Australian species?


Please share your thoughts. Thanks, Dave
