Hibernation Safe Period

13 March 2018 - 10:37 AM

I adopted  healthy active 18 yr old male Hermann   George  2yrs ago and he has hibernated for a period of 12 weeks both last winter and this.

Both times he as gone in his own fridge and maintained a good weight ( jackson weight length calculation ) both times  he has woken up fine and active, eating with in a day or so.

Having read many books  I am confused on what is a safe period of time to hibernate my tortoise as it varies from one expert to another ,

we monitor him and check his weight every week at least  .Any advice please
