I'm thinking of setting up a few torts in a fairly large outdoor enclosure. We live in south-central Texas, just to the NW of San Antonio, and the climate is hot/dry most of the year and cool/dry for about 2-3 months in winter. It seldom (average just a couple times a year) drops below freezing-and even then the day might be in the 60s-low 70s!.

I'd like to keep the torts out year-round, so any suggestions as to the best species? I know Russians would have trouble hibernating with the high daytime winter temps....
