My oh my, aren't we in a sanctimonious mood today. As I said, I've kept them healthy and happy for over 10 years now in an indoor setup. They are hibernated indoors in a bar fridge as well and have produced viable offspring for the past 4 years. I think that you are anthropomorphising your animals. I applaud your setup, but it is not necessary to go to such extremes to keep them healthy and happy.
