Hey everyone, I've decided I'm ready to put Little foot down for hibernation, as he is becoming slowly and digging down, its getting colder here. Just a few questions.

 

What is the best way to store a tortoise?

 

He seems very healthy, weighing around 2./5 pounds, tested negative for worms, and no signs of runny nose. Anything I should be looking for?

 

Best way to wind him down for hibernation?

 

When should I wake him up?

 

 

Thanks
