Default Re: T. Yangi cooling

T.yangi are a member of the T.verrucosus complex [9 species so far, with two populations moved to other species groups] and not closely related to T.kweichowensis. They have been available in the trade for many years now, represented as T.kweichowensis, T.verrucosus, or T.shanjing. In my experience, they can handle rather chilly temperatures, as I housed them outdoors even with night temperatures dropping below freezing. They came indoors only when temperatures stopped rising in the day as well. They just buried themselves beneath the leaf litter in their enclosure. At least some members of this complex routinely handle cold weather in the wild, with T.himalayanus getting buried under snow cover for 2-3 months.
