Successful Hibernation This Year

16 February 2020 - 03:24 PM

Hello everyone

My two 4 year old tortoises came out of hibernation this weekend after 12 weeks in the fridge. It is all good. In good shape and eating.

Every year i take a picture of my tortoises to memorise how they grow and change. So I thought i would share this with you.


Hibernation Box In The Fridge

Would a polystyrene insulated food grade box that I can line inside and fill with soil, and with a lid with plenty of holes be suitable as long as the temp inside the box is 5 degrees?

Thank you


Can Hermann Boettgeri Torts Live On Mediterranean Coast Of Morocco?

Not sure if this question was ever asked before...

Can Hermann Boettgeri torts live on Mediterranean coast of Morocco? It looks like this is the same latitude as Southern Turkey.

My question is about whether they will adapt to the climate in North of this country and be able to hibernate in the winter.


Are My Juveniles Females?

My torts are 4 years old, and i am wondering whether their pics attached give a clue of their gender. 


I am unsure if the quality of the pcitures are telling anything though.


I think this is a question for Sue or Karen.


Thank you
