"Hi, We got 4 greek tortoises, 3 female and one male. I live in Dubai and was planning on keeping them outdoors all year around in a nice big pen. However after reading more about them I'm not sure anymore if outdoors is the right place for them. Our lowest average temp is 19 degrees in January and highest is 36 in August, however with lows of of 14 degrees during winter and highs of 42 in summer with bad humidity. Is this ok for our tortoises? Will they be fine outdoors or should we move them indoors??? Because I haven't been certain if they are cold, we have been brining them in at night which I am pretty sure is not ok either. Also, we water our grass and plants everyday which will leave their moist and watery in the morning for some time, is this fine as well? I read that moist and humid areas can cause respiratory issues. Would appreciate any advise. If there is a tortoise expert out there with a few spare minutes, please email me on Thanks, Edina - a concerned tortoise owner :)"
