That's it then, all torts up and so far doing well. I disturbed Maurice and Zoe yesterday, and today Martha and Martha's Friend were dug up. There hasn't been any weight loss, and all are eating well. All we need now is some sun to kick start them x x x hugs x x

That's great news, Stella  :happy2:

It's wonderful to be reunited with our torts, isn't it? Let's hope all the members' tortoises emerge healthy.  :)

Hi Stella,
Glad to hear your torts are all safely up. It is still quite cold here so I've left 'Billiejo' for another week or so. Hopefully we get some sunshine and better weather soon. Take care.
Kind Regards
Freddy

Freddy, how long do you hibernate Billijo for? I have read that older torts benefit from a shorter hibernation. Or did I dream it?? X x x

Hi Stella,
I have hibernated 'Billiejo' for nearly 20 weeks, the maximum length. You are right shorter hibernations are better for older torts but the weather has been so cold here of late that I've decided to give her a few extra weeks.
Best wishes
Freddy
