How often to weigh
Posted: 30/12/2009 by tortoise7

Hi Guys
How often do others weigh their adult torts once in hibernation (Fridge).I was set to weigh every week which I did the first two, but now wonder if I can perhaps weigh her every 2 wks so I don't disturb her. What would you advice.? I do open and close the fridge twice a day to circulate fresh air.

Hi Jane,

I only given my larger tortoises a weight check every couple of weeks in hibernation when I've used the fridge.

Hi Dave
Thanks for your reply. Yes I was feeling more comfortable with that as she only lost a 1gm last time I weighed, it's just nice to have someone elses view.
