Hi, all,

I took Harry up from hibernation today, his eighteen weeks were up.

After a warm shower and bask under his lamp, I put him out in the enclosure for an hour.

"Where's the shed gone?", he thinks.

Half-hour under his cloche to catch the sun's rays and warmth.

A new corner to burrow down in.

I brought him in at 4pm as the sun was setting, and now he's retired to his bed-box for an early night.

 

Another successful hibernation, and it's great to have him back. :thumbup:  :excited:

Lol, think he wants to go back Graham. Well done, all go now again. Mine are stirring and almost out of the soil, so it will only be days I imagine. Then to explain to my energy provider why the consumption is going up instead of down :)

Hagar woke up this week. I kept him indoors for a few days but it was sunny today so out he went, and he is eating too. Now in his house for the night. What wonderful creatures tortoises are. We have had him for 36 years, my husband found him in a field!

The cloche looks like a good idea. :)  I wonder if it would be useful in my neck of the woods?
