Yes randomly one of our built in wardrobes has a socket in it so ideal for a mini fridge!Yes, you need to be sure he's passed them all and that his gut is empty before hibernation so there isn't anything that could turn toxic and kill him. It's a tricky business - I'm glad my tort isn't a hibernating species to save me making that decision.
Do you use a fridge to keep the temps constant in our milder winters?
He pooed a few more today so unless I'm absolutely sure. I'm more concerned that the weight I'm weighing him at could be 'stones' weight not tortoise weight and he could be too light to hibernate though he would have to have a lot in him to be the case!
I might just not hibernate him anyway as I'm not convinced it's beneficial to then and is always a risk.
