    If it's warm enough (that is, he can feel it through the floor), then he'll find it once he wants to warm back up. Don't need to stress, they'll figure it out fast.

    Heat is heat, it wouldn't matter which direction it came from. He will work out where it is and curl up on top of it.
    Bob smashed a jumbo rat on Sunday and spent the night in his hide which is the hot spot (CHE from above). He has spent the best part of the last day and a half in the middle of his viv of which I have a 10-12c variation.
