15 degrees isn't that bad of a difference. In the wild where they're from, they spend all day burrowed where it's cooler and moister. Just be sure they have plenty of shady areas and lots of deep sandy soil to burrow down deep.

Like it was already said in the last reply, you'll see them as dusk and at dawn.

Best of luck,

Bill Tracy
