Hello, I live in WA, and I guess you could say that it gets pretty cold. Do you think that it would be a good idea to house my southern painted hatchlings outside? Should I wait until they\'re older? Should I only put them out in the summer? Should I just forget it all the way? Lol, yah, I have tons of questions. Please help! :-D Thanks a bunch! -[email protected]

I would only put therm outside when it is warm outside, 75-80 degreess. If it is not that warm outside, i wouldnt doo it, they will try and hiberante and end up dying.

If it is that warm outside, amek sure they is a cover on the top so birds or other predators cant harm your turtles. Also make sure there isnt a way for them to get out.
