Which Method!

11 August 2014 - 09:12 AM

Hi there...I'm new here and have started doing my research into tortoise ownership. My main concern at this stage is Hibernation as is most peoples by the sounds of things lol

So my concern is...I don't have & wouldn't have the room for a fridge, so I'm thinking of alternative ways to hibernate. Why has no one not invented a mini fridge specifically for hibernating tortoises yet lol?? I have a garage on bloc over the back of the house, so I thought this winter I'd monitor the temperatures in there for if/when we get a tortoise. I'd be getting either a "Spur-Thighed Tortoise" or a "Hermann" would be a hatchling hopefully so would box storage be suitable depending on temps this winter in there? Do I just buy a normal thermometer to put on the wall in there?
