In Topic: Torts Not Eating

Thanks Sue, that's very reassuring. I'll put them into wind down now and let them hibernate early. If all's going well at 12 weeks I can leave them a little longer before getting them up.

(My house-sitter will be pleased. We're going away in March and she copes better with them awake than in the fridge!)

Many thanks for your prompt advice.


In Topic: Safe To Leave A Bit Longer?

Hi Sue,


Thanks for your advice. There is water in a bowl in the fridge but the substrate in the hibernation box does feel a bit dry so have dampened it slightly and will leave for another two weeks - so 12 weeks in all.





PS: The guidance on length of hibernation is taken from the front page of this site.
