Hi, Everyone,

Glad to report that Harry is up and about; I got him up yesterday, and all went well.  :D

He's surprisingly quite active this morning, so I'll put him in the enclosure later, and see if he eats or drinks.

 

Another successful hibernation. Phew!

Glad to hear Harry's up Graham, the sunshine has certainly brought our tortoises out. Having said that they will need tucking up tonight. Apparently it is going to be the coldest night of the winter tonight....-3 x x x hugs x

Glad to hear all yours are up now too, Stella, and let's hope for a cracking summer for all our torts to enjoy.

I'll be bringing Harry in about five o'clock, no doubt he'll snuggle down in his bed-box for the night.

Brilliant news Graham. It's always a relief when they wake up safe and sound. :)

Thanks, everyone, and just to update you, Harry had a bath this morning, whereupon he had himself a good drink while he was there. Later on, I put him in the enclosure, and saw him nibbling on lamb's lettuce and dandelion, so it looks as though he's soon returning to his usual self.  :)
