HI All
Now I have been sorted about the viv versus table debate I come to another topic,in all the books and info I have read on leopards,
they all say not to hibernate, can anyone help please. I am becoming very confused as all other tortoise owners seem to hibernate their torts.Hope someone out there can throw some light on this subject.
Regards
Maz :(

Leopards are one of the many torts that do not hibernate, as in the wild, their temps never drop that low :) :) A few others off the top of my head that don't hibernate include redfoots/yellowfoots, indian stars, sulcutas etc
I think most, but not all mediteranian species hibernate :-)
Hope this helps a little
