Hi Guys

Just a quick question... has anybody else still got their torts in hibernation???

I was due to take them out of the fridge last weekend but due to the really cold weather were having here in Cumbria at the moment i have left them where they are. Our temperatures are not getting above 3 degrees and unfortuantely there are no weeds growing in the garden either!

Should I leave them where they are or should I take them out and see how it goes???

cheers

Lynne

As Bruce has said, if they are not loosing weight, then leave them another week at least. It has to warm up soon:0)

I put mine in at the end of December and will be bringing them out in the last week of March, when they will go into their indoor enclosure, with fancy lettuce and the few weeds I can find. Their opuntia cactus is coming on well. It won't be warm enough where we live until mid april, I expect for them to go outside.

The most important thing is have they lost any weight , have they urinated during hibernation , and age ?
