    They are really gorgeous Josh.Was looking at their markings. They really are truly individual. Very special creatures :) When do they come out of there?
    They'll come out when they lose up to 10% of their body weight. They should stay in there until feb at the very least Then I transfer them to a warm room, and they start stirring after a few hours. Once they have emerged fully, I put them in a luke warm bath to get them re-hydrated (they take in water through their cloaca and also drink it), put them under their heat lamps, and then offer them food. They start eating in a minimum of a few hours, and a maximum of a few days. I bath them a few times a day for a week or two to keep up hydration.

    Some of my friends have been doing it for 30+ Years and they still haven't gotten used to it. I think its a Human thing, it seems so un-natural, and the connotations we have with fridges being for eating don't help either.

    A friend has a 138 year old tortoise, she adopted it from a lady, who originally got it from her Nan, another has a 100year old tortoise, I know a few others around 80-90 generally, they say that if they die before 80 they die early.
