My tortoise was born in April 09', Its currently living in my room- is this ok? or does it need to be outside ?
As it is a hatchling (only 5months old) how do I go about hybernating it etc?? Thanks in advance.

In the wild they will hibernate in their first winter. I hibernated Bentley at 18 months. I think I would probably overwinter the first year, but it is a matter of personal preference and courage sad.gif
If he's in your living room, he will definitely need UV light and probably a heat lamp, for the daytime
