Hi all,

My little turtle has been hibernating since 12/27. He has been well with no additional weight loss (still 43 grams) He is the one I got in October that had not eaten for 3 months thus I went ahead and hibernated him.

We are getting ready to go into a warmer spell here for the next week or so for sure with temps getting into the 50's. I think he will wake up as the temps warm due to his location. If he does, should I go ahead and start bringing him out of hibernation or attempt to keep him cold? February 27th will be 8 weeks.

Let me know your thoughts and how long do you guys usually hibernate your turtles? It varies on different websites.

Thanks in advance
Linda
