What are you going on about?

For me... I'm confident in my opinion... again based on my experience and observations.

I'm not going to give any advice to another person if I think there is a hint of harm coming to their animals.

In fact... I think there is more chance of harm coming to an animal that has not been hibernated in... what was it... 9 years... and insisting the keeper was wrong in not hibernating the tortoise.

Again... I'm not saying hibernating a tortoise is wrong... I'm saying it is not a necessity for the good health of the animal.

(I'm still sitting here wondering where this is coming from. Maybe I'm being sensitive but I read your post as if I had personally insulted you.)




>>You got me there bud, I no nothing, I'll just let my southern range Mt.Torts stay out all Winter,they will know what to do. Screw it if their imune system fails, stupid tortoise, thats what they get for living on the Equator for 30,000 years And I'll heat up my Northern Mt.Torts just so they can loose a vast amount of weight while trying hibernating with heat . Heres a good reference for everyone, it seems no one can agree on this hibernation thing "The Obligate Scientist". Its really cool! Ed, You better hope no ones tortoises get sick now O-wise one, we'll be real mad if your wrong. "Do'in it wrong for 24 years" god all that effort for nothing, I feel so stupid like a hibernating redfoot. Pic "you stupid redfoot said the Mt.Tortoise." "Go hibernate yourself" Vic
