    I was just wandering what behavior a T will show if its too cold?

    I just got a b.smithi last week and the guy I bought it from said that room temperature should be just fine. The temperature here is generally from 70-75 F in the day and 65-70 F at night with the windows usually open.

    I have read a lot of people say that room temp is just fine, but what signs should i look for in my T to tell if its too cold?:?

    generally they will be less active and their appetite will be smaller.
  3. Generally, it would just become lethargic, but T's aren't especially active anyway so with a new T it will be hard to gauge what's normal for your T. However, those temps are fine. I keep mine consistently in the 60s with no ill effects.

    I agree no problem with temps there. These T's often times move very little for extended periods of time. :)
