Pre summer temperature spike

So today, Saturday, temps where I live in Maine spiked to about 90 F (32C) up from about 65-70 F (18-21C) a temp normally reserved for later in the summer.

Where i keep my Ts got up to about 85 F (29.5 C) so i scrambled to install air conditioner and kept air cooling air purifier on.

I know the Ts would have survived , but I do have about a half dozen 1/2 inch or so slings that i am overly cautious with. I also added water to all of their enclosures and did capture my G. porteri taking a drink, which rarely I see do. Most times he just attacks the water I put in.


Temperatures for most of the next week should be about 65-70 F.
