Hi Jack,

Horsfields are hardy little tortoises who can take both hot and cold temperatures, however they do not do well in a damp environment and therefore i would not leave them out overnight especially being so young also. It is fine to leave them out in the day as long as they can go under cover if they need to, you will need to cover the enclosure with a mesh type cover too as they will need protection from birds etc.
