I am glad to say, that all my tortoises are up and eating. All seem to have come through hibernation well.
Adults up and grazing, and mating.
I hope you all had a great hibernation too.

Hey that's great news! Mating? Already? I hadn't even considered the biggies would be thinking of that as soon as they wake. :laugh:
Learning all the time!

Well Paula, this year one of my males woke earlier than the females. And he was at it within an hour of putting them together. I now have seperated them, so she does not get too stressed.

Glad they are all up and good.


and Paula- they are male!! Doh!! what else do any of them think about, tortoise or not. :D :laugh: (was a bit surprised actually)


Are these the last to get up or has anyone got any still sleeping?
