Hi, I was considering frilled dragons for an outdoor enclosure I have (for part of the year anyway, I live in northern West Virginia) that is 16'x12'x10'. My question has three parts:
1.) How low can night temps be safely? (I've read different things)Night time lows here in summer are around 65-75 degress, with NTL's in the high fifties in spring and fall.
2.) How high can humidity be? (again, I've heard differing things)Summer humidty regularly gets up to 70-80%
3.) Should I make the mesh small enough to prevent wild insects from entering to prevent firefly ingestion? I know they are fatal for beardies so I guess I'm projecting this on frillies, or would that just be me being paranoid?
Or, lastly, are these guys a poor choice?
