Hi All

My tortoise Bertie came out of hibernation on Saturday, I've been bathing him twice a day with repto-boost and he's eating again.
He still seems quite sleepy though, this morning I got him up, he ate a little bit and then spent the rest of the day in his hide.
I got him up again when I got back from work and he ate again but went back into his hide again.
Is it normal for them to still be un-active when they come out of hibernation or at this time of year ? He seems very much like he was prior to hibernation.
I've added extra u/v lights to his table and the temp under his megaray lamp is 32 degrees.
Can I do any more or is this just normal ?

Hi Robert

I have my older tortoise out of Hibernation. And she is very inactive. Some days she moves about and another day she will stay in her corner all day. I think they can sense that it is still very cold outside.

So I don't think you have much to worry about. As long as you keep up the baths.
