Sometimes it’s better to be cold-blooded

Sometimes it's better to be cold-blooded
It's been maddeningly hot in Cape Town for the last three days. Temperatures have exceeded 35°C - and in fact, right now it's 37°C in my neighbourhood! Take a look at our page the lists real-time weather conditions.

I wonder how this tortoise feels about being out in the sun, and if it's perhaps preferable to be cold-blooded on days like this.
