I've hopefully added a new section Sue for naturalistic keeping.  :lol:

Oh that’s brilliant Karen. Hopefully summer will bring more interest. This year I’m hoping to have a more naturalistic approach to incubation too, so will post the progress.

Lovely to see them all outdoors eating naturally, just as they should be. Did you breed the smaller ones yourself? These photos would be great in the photo section. It woulD be good to have a section for naturalistic keeping, so that new keepers could see what a difference it makes. Ive got a little blind hermanni that also does well outdoors self feeding. She grows more slowly than the others but is still doing well. This is one of my sub adults last year.

Haha. Don’t make it too damp. Remember that underground it’s pretty damp too compared to most people’s hibermation methods. Any ideas on this anyone, metabolism?

Yes, even adults can weigh more after hibernation, it’s not really related to age, but their condition when going into hibernation. They are very good at finding the right spot. Even in my hibernaculum I find they prefer the damper areas on the whole. Soon be time to come out
