Hello

 

Today was the last day and last night planned outdoors for my two Hermann babies. And tomorrow morning i wanted to get them back indoors.

However today it was impossible to find one of them (Namaste) in order to put it inside the cold frame for the night. I searched everywhere for about 45 minutes inside the enclosure, and no traces of Namaste, no clues left. It is impossible to escape from the enclosure, so it is dug somewhere. The last time i saw Namaste was at around 2pm today basking under the sun, that was when I was checking on both of them.

 

Hopefully tomorrow it will reappear, but my worry is that now it is not really warm and sunny to stimulate it to emerge.

 

What can i do? I must find it over the next few days.

 

Thank you

Sabina

Hi Sabina,

If he doesn't come out when the temps pick up today then your going to have to look for him, he's obviously dug down some where in the enclosure it's now just finding him, I would start looking near plants that you have in there and go from there good luck.  :)

Yeah, the chance we have is that we know they are creatures of habits and the spots they tend to spend the night unless they pick another new spot! I never thought small torts will dig that deep, but they do indeed! Size does not matter :-)

Great news, Sabina, you must have been out of your mind with worry. So glad the panic’s over.

Thanks Karen and Graham. I have let them a little longer outdoors given the nice sunny warmer weather, but this time not with the full run of the enclosure so that I can find them during the next few days. Back indoors this coming weekend unless we have another warmer spell.
