I just have 1 light/UV bulb, which I have started to turn on later and switch off earlier.

What would you suggest as suitable bedding? And a good supplier? Currently go to Pets at Home.

I have still been feeding them (though the bigger ones consumption has decreased recently). Do I need to starve them for a few weeks before putting them in?

Hi Karen,


I believe they are 2-3 years. My fiance's brother asked us if we would like them, as his young daughter had lost interest in them, We have had them just over a year, but have still not got the certificate off her brother yet. So we are unsure exactly how old they are.


The bigger one was 9.5cm and the smaller is about 8cm. I read 10 cm and 500g were the minimum length and weight for them to hibernate.
