Ok - great.

They can very commonly fluctuate their temperature such as this.

Typically it is recommended to take their temperature at least 3 times daily and plot the temperature data on graph paper.

This can help see this pattern and also inform you of when there is a consistent change as the temperature can normally fluctuate over the course of the day.
