I'd like everyone's opinion/experience on the minimum nighttime temp you feel is safe for Burmese Stars. I have a group of a dozen, all 6-8", and I allow them to stay in their outdoor pen 24/7 when nighttime lows are 60 and above (they have a heated barn but none of them enters it at night on their own). When they were smaller, my lower limit was 65. I've had no issues with respiratory problems at all.

I've had other burm star keepers tell me everything from night time lows of 40 for adults, to nothing below 65.

Thoughts?
