Hello everyone

My 3 years old two tortoises came out of their 12 weeks of hibernation on Saturday 9 March.

They hibernated in a laboratory frigde (brand is LEC), same brand as the one Graham has for Harry. That was an investment, and i was very pleased with it becasue it keeps temp stable.

Both look healthy, fit and have a good appetite, so all good. They are currently living indoors and in a month time they will move outdoors.

Great news, Sabina, I'm glad Namaste and Shanti have completed a successful hibernation, it's always a relief when it's over. Harry's up too, so it seems the new tortoise season has started!

Well done Sabina. Nearly time for my babies to come out. The adults are up, so looks like a uk tortoise invasion again. Here’s to some decent weather :)
