Hi Guys,

Billiejo was taken out of hibernation today. :wub: 

Glad to say she has made it successfully through another hibernation, her 34th with me. Needless to say I was very relieved.

With the bad weather we've been experiencing here I decided to leave her for an another week or two, so it was a long hibernation for her. She is indoors at the moment and coming around. I will put her outside when the weather improves and when her new enclosure is complete. Hope you are all keeping well and that all your torts are fine. :)

Take care. Talk soon.

Kind Regards

Glad to hear all went well, I agree its such a relief when you get them up, I got Daisy up last weekend after doing 12 weeks, just waiting for the weather now to start improve now.

Hi, Freddy, great news Billie-Jo is up, well done on another successful hibernation. Let's hope now for a good, warm summer to get our torts energised and active. Hoping all's well with you and yours.
