Hi all,

Baby T has been in hibernation since 12/27. His temps are a constant 52-56 degrees depending on the weather outside. He did have another 2 gram weight loss during the cooling down period the first week but since then he is holding steady at 43 grams. His temps have been stable at around 52-54 degrees and humidity at about 75%. I am wetting his moss weekly along with taking him out for just a moment to get a weight. I am keeping detailed records as this is the first time I have done an indoors hibernation (or any other hibernation) My husband thought I was nuts as I had thermometers all over the house in various locations trying to find a suitable place.

Just wanted to give an update.

Thanks for everyone's ongoing help.

Linda
