Not an expert yet but I got a few years n a very large group of lizards so I'm learning really quick.

Why don't you buy a book?
Dr Seward's n Dan Beck's are excellent reference resources. Whats so mystifying about hibernation bro?
Condition your animals well. Stop feed twoo weeks before cooling. Keep a decent size water dish in WHATEVER ya choose to hibernate them in I use newspaper medium works fine..... Drop them down to 52-58 for three months somewhere dark n quiet. Wake them up n be ready to feed the heck out of them. I check a few my finicky animals weight monthly while hibernating to assure they are not dehydrating but the whole process is really simple.

peace
