Hazel has been awake for a few weeks now and Norman finally joined her today after their hibernation. It's lovely to have them both awake again. :)

 

I him out of the fridge this morning, gave him a nice long bath and he had all morning to warm up before I could check on him properly when I got home at lunchtime.... I needn't have worried. He was marching round his tortoise table like he owned the place and wolfed his food down like a tortoise possessed when I offered him some. :blink:

Glad he is up and well - haven't done the hibernation bit yet and am dreading it a bit but especially as you must miss them so much! :)

That's great news, Kelly, congratulations on another successful hibernation, well done.
It's great to have them back, isn't it? Harry's due up in about three weeks, can't wait to see him up and about again.

Boy pebble womw from his hibernation this week. He looks well and hasn't lost any weight in his natural hibernation. It is good to have them back. Here's looking at the rest emerging in the next few weeks. X x s

It's certainly good to have them both back again. They've since inseparable since I put Norman back into the tortoise table yesterday. :wub: 

Roll on the Spring and Summer when they can both go back outside again and enjoy some natural sunshine. :spring:
