Hi all,

I have been keeping a baby leopard and baby sulcata outdoors in Houston this summer after bringing them back from San Antonio around May. Since then, both of them have become less active, sleep a lot, and I was wondering if the increased humidity (San Antonio is drier) had anything to do with it? Or is it simply the increased heat as well? They still eat, but seem less eager and recently, my sulcata started shedding around his face. They have full access to grasses and weeds where they graze, but then they retreat into shade very quickly.

Is this inactivity normal? Should I move them back indoors instead?
Thanks.
