My Rudis' enclosure (is that correct grammar?) is in my bedroom because that is the only place I can keep it right now. I am sometimes in and out and turning on the lights during his "12 hours off" sleeping time. He will often sleep through it but if I make enough noise he will wake up. I am wondering if this is detrimental to his sleep patterns and if I should make a greater effort to not disturb him.
I also just got a cool air humidifier. It is not the directional one. The only direction the humidified air goes is up. I have it right now on the floor a couple of feet away from his enclosure. The fan is not super loud, but it is not whisper quiet either. Could that constant fan noise/vibration be disturbing him? Does anyone run fans and humidifiers at night?
I know that his species can tolerate lower temperatures than tropical chams. I am also wondering if it would be a good idea to take him outside at night. It is a safe area because it's a second story balcony that is well covered. it is 1am right now and the temp in the room has only gone down to 75. This is what his daytime temp should be! the nighttime temp outside gets into the 60s. Maybe keeping him outside would be better for him, for the temp and the noise. I'm including a pic of his indoor setup and a pic of the outdoor location I can move it to.
Sorry for such a long post but I feel like I'm going to really let the little guy down if I don't get it just right. I really appreciate all the help from everybody so far. hopefully I might meet some of you if a rep show comes to town. (I've never been to one before). Thanks again. -Scott
