This is the first year my creep of torts will be hibernating 'au natural' in Tort Lodge. I have been battling to keep Boy Pebble above ground since August and 'lived in a viv' Georgia hasn't been far behind him.

Last weekend I managed to bath and weigh them all and the buried two went straight back to their underground beds!!! The other four haven't eaten much at all and yesterday and today they haven't moved. Ideally I would have liked them to stay with me for another three weeks but I think I have lost my battle to their instincts... X x x hugs x x

Hi Stella,
My adult Hermann 'Billiejo' has also succumbed to the natural instinct of hibernation. She is in the middle of a 4 week wind-down at the moment and will be going in to her hibernation box soon. Best of luck with your gang. ;)
Kind Regards
Freddy :D

I checked them today and only Martha has come out of the lodge. Bubble, Peta and Martha's friend havent dug in but are half down and haven't moved for some time. I think I might get my family tree out to research..... What with part time work and no torts to keep me occupied I could find some hobbies x. X hugs x x
