 Cold?

Toodles sometimes gets cold at night and I pick him up and hes physically cold to the touch, because he hides in the plant from the light, ....is that normal?

CWD self-regulate their temps by moving from area to area. They find a comfortable spot to spend the night and they sleep. Toodles knows what he’s doing. He’s fine. If he gets cold he’ll move closer to his heat source. Remember CWD are cold blooded animals and their core body temp is always going to be less than yours. :)

Oh, thank you...Today I came home and he was sun bathing and he was a nice bright green which he barely is anymore... Then he cleared the Eco earth away and layed down on the glass bottom...is that another way to cool himself down?

A lot of them luv to dig. Do you have some shady spots on your "hot" side for him to rest in? They like a little shade now and then!:)
