All of my babies are out (for the past month or so) and I've finished the enclosure renovation/enlargement. Some are more active than others, but guess that's normal? Now that they have so much more space to roam (and hide), it's not been as easy as in the past to monitor their eating. Seems like food is going untouched, though have witnessed some eating going on. I'm used to hungry little critters in the spring, so I'm a little concerned. Wondering if, with all the extra space, they might be feeding more on worms, bugs & plants than on the food I put out for them? That's something I wouldn't be able to monitor short of finding eaten plants (which I'm not). I'm going to get them all in soon for their "exams" and weights. So far, though, they all look healthy, post brumation.
