:i was wondering if i made and out door cage out of wood and screen if it would be a good idea for my dragons to go in it for about an hour on warm days. i took my girl tethys outside after supper today and when i brought her back inside all she wanted to do was hide.she was very stressed probably abit overwelmed.but making an outdoor cage be a good idea when the weather is in the mid 20's in Celsius (im in Canada by the way) p.s. is it normal for tethys to be stressed like this.

Something new can stress any animal. I wouldn't make a habit of it. If you can provide a basking spot that's warm enough then by all means do. Keep in mind that while the forecast temp may be for example 50 F, the sun concentrating in a small area can make the temp in that area be as much as 20 F more.
