I am theorizing that the conditions for my russian are way too hot, and that he may be attempting to aestivate. He is highly lethargic, hardly eating, and not nearly as enthusiastic about his soakings as he used to be. His habitat is primariliy in my garage, with 3-4 hours of direct sunlight (although he typically likes the shadowy area of the outside enclosure) It's bee boiling hot in North Carolina lately (95 daytime, maybe 70-75 at night)

Any input from anybody? Thanks!
