Over wintering
Posted: 14/07/2017 by Wendiskies

I have 2 Herman tortoise approx. 2 years old. I was told they would not hibernate until they are fully grown. Last winter one did hide away for a couple of days then came back out and carried on eating as usual.

I would like to permanently over winter them,is this possible ? and have you any info on the best way to do this.
I do have all the necessary lamps.

Ignore any other 'advice' from that person.

They can have 3mths provided that their weight chart is good.

I don't understand your last sentence.
Click "The Tortoise / ..." box for Hibe info.
