Hello All,

I have a yearling eastern box who ate well through last(his first) winter through variying tempuratures indoors and out and did not hibernate at all. This winter about 2 weeks ago he started displaying digging behavior but would wake up every morning and bask and eat like ussual.

The dillema is... Now without any real change in outdoor or enclosure temps he has refused food for 3 days and has dug in and not woken up for the last 2 days.

If he is hibernating that is great! But I wont be able to get his temps any lower than 60 perhaps and I'm affraid of him being in a high traffic area of my home.

Any Advice.........???
Does anyone have any experience with these temps and hibernation?

Will they hibernate in a area of my apartment that is frequented daily?
