arginated tortoises don’t need a heat source at night under normal conditions; they will be fine at 65 to 70 degrees during the night. If humidity is artificially high (above 60 percent), I would keep them above 80 degrees at all times, as cool and humid can be a bad combination that causes respiratory issues.
