My little guys came out of the fridge today. Most are back doing their own torty thing except for Bailey, he was slow to wake and when I picked him up to bath him he blew lots of frothy bubbles from his nose. He has had two reptoboost baths, been kept warm and seperate from the others. He has eaten a dandi leaf and so hopfully tomorrow he will be a little better. He hasn't blown anymore bubbles so fingers crossed. Ami is yet to eat but has had a bask and has been busy exploring her new enclosure.

Warming up.

The camera shows how they gradually warm through. It took an hour to get from fridge temp 4-5C to approx 12-14C.

Nearly ready for our baths...

Hi Paula,
Glad to hear your torts are safely up. :) Hopefully, Bailey will be fine. Your pics look fab. Congratulations on getting them all safely through hibernation. You certainly had a big group this year. Best of luck with them all. Take care. Talk soon.
Kind Regards
Freddy

Thanks all :wub:

Bailey is doing just fine, there have been no more bubbles, he was quiet until today, sitting under the lamp most of the time. Today he has been much better, eating like a horse and charging around... hopefully that's him feeling better. I shall keep a close eye on him tho. :)

Well Bruce if you borrow one they are free... but I think if you want to own your own they are now cheaper than they once were at around ... ahemmmm £4,000!
Not sure they are worth that sort of money for tortoise use. :D But interesting to play about with. :)
Hope Victor and Bentley are in fine fettle Lin? :D
