HI after doing 10 weeks  for her first hibernation (minus a couple of days coz I woke her as im off work and I can keep an eye on her) she is a  wake and sitting under the heat lamp, she actually put on a couple of grams during hibernation.

 

Thank you to everyone who give me great advice about how best to hibernate etc, which did help loads and wasnt as daunting as I thought, I'm sure il be back with more questions about other matters over the course of the spring/summer

 

Thanks :)

Well done. Don't worry about the eating for a couple of days. If she has not eaten after a week, you might have to give her some extra help, but it's unlikely ;)

I've had no sign of any waking yet, but have got some up for other owners who decided they wanted them back after 8 weeks.
