 As Dubbo’s temperature plunge there’s been a number of frosty starts to the mornings, so some of the animals are finding ways to beat the winter chills and stay warm. 

The Galapagos Tortoise, which prefer the warm weather similar to their equatorial homeland the Galapagos Islands, have been staying indoors under their heater to escape the big chill. 

The huge tortoises prefer the warmer weather and spend most of their time in the warmer months soaking up the sun or wallowing in the mud, so they’re quite happy to spend winter by the heater, like us humans do. 

The Tasmanian Devils on the other hand are enjoying the cooler weather which is very similar to the cold climate of Tasmania.  The Tasmanian Devils have been much more active and relishing the chilly cold snap.
