Cindy, All the tortoises are fine. I was the only one out in the 24F checking on their inside hut temps and making sure power was on. I had a genarator on standby. But I must say I was quite nervice about a power failure at that temp finding out the next day could be to late so no sleep for me. Mt.Tortoises do rather well being moved or kept pinned up a few days (except males)they go back to their normal resting places as soon as I put them back or open the cave door. That is except two old females who liked it in the heated hut so much they stayed a few days. My biggest hassell is my enclosures are so big its quite hard to move them through the palmetto/tangles trees and toe-stumping cypress stumps to the huts. Its made me think about getting a wench on the hut connected to a sled.(I already drag them in a slick bottom plastic tub! Works great by the way. Of cource not having soooo many is OUT OF THE QUESTION! You know what I mean. Vic
