I lost my Russian Tortoise outside this July. He somehow managed to get off the deck. He's left me urinates every now and then. And eaten a bunch of stuff. I have tired everything to lure him out but he keeps avoiding me like on purpose. I've come out at all times of day in kinds of weather to hopefully catch him but I'm only finding his surprise stuff. Anyways I live in upstate New York and the weathers getting colder and I can't find any answer anywhere online. If he happened to have made a burrow which I'm sure he did by now. And it's deep enough and he were to hibernate in it would he survive the winter? I heard that where they live in the wild has extremely "harsh" winters what I found from research. He's extremely smart. Is it possible or is he just going to die no matter what?
