You know it's hot...

...when your tropical lizard forsakes his tropically-heated room (well, temperately-located room heated to tropical temperatures at great cost to The Mommy), and shuns even the flannel and down nest he so favors, to sleep someplace less bloody effin' hot! (I have lost track of the number of days we have been sweltering with days over 100F and nights not much cooler than 65F.)

In case you're sweltering, too, keep in mind that our critters also suffer from temps that are too hot for them. I have some suggestions (that do not include sleeping in the bottom of the bookcase) for herps that can be used for other types of critters, too, in my Microclimates for Your Reptiles article.
