We have been going out a little bit on the weekends, but he's still pretty small and it would take me an hour to track him down in the outdoor enclosure if I just left him in there. I'm not yet comfy with leaving him out there yet. He's currently inside in a manageable enclosure. I am able to keep an eye on food and water intake better for the time being. Like my wife says "he's just a baby girl". LOL!!!!!!Very pretty! Your guy should be able to get some outside time just about year round in Tampa.
