Hi all, just wanted to say a huge thanks to everyone who has offered their expert advice, guidance and support on here, my Darwin successfully went through his first hibernation (10 weeks) only losing 1 gram after his wind down from start at 617grams to finish at 616grams, I followed advice from you guys despite my nerves and it paid off, he was eating and drinking just 2 hours after coming out and rambling around happily after his time in the fridge, I will keep all my hibernation notes and fortnightly weights that I gathered for next year where hopefully all being well I will have to miss him for 12 weeks (planning on increasing slowly)
Thanks again x
