I just moved from Florida to northeast Alabama, and I'm wondering if there is a way to keep my large sulcatas outside all year long. In Florida, I kept them out year round, including the cold nights, when I would have a heat lamp in the dog house, but right now, the adults are in a cattle trough inside. I've had it get down to 5 degrees here twice since November, and in January, the temperature is about 30-35 degrees. Can anyone suggest some type of sheltered house that can protect large sulcatas from the cold weather we get here?

Thanks, Cliff
