Last fall I couldn't locate my favorite male eastern when I pulled all the boxies out of the outdoor pen to put them in the garage for brumation, so I spread out a couple bails of straw in the pen and hoped for the best. This spring I have looked many times and didn't find him so I was beginning to think that he didn't make it since we had a nasty cold winter, but we have had a very cool spring. I raked up the hay over a month ago when night temps were above freeding, but finally yesterday I saw him, I had to do a double take and was extremely happy to see him alive and looking great. I have raised up since he was a hatching 6 year ago. I'm contemplating trying to brumate all me turtles outside next year by covering the pen with 6 inchs of straw, I guess I will re-evaluate this fall, would be happy to hear other peoples oppinions. I live in Iowa.
