    Hi there!

    Any of you tortoise freaks have any experience in hibernating the north moroccan tortoise (T.G.Marokkensis)?

    They are cold tolerant to a fairly high degree and we have left them
    Outside when temperatures drop to the low 40s and even high 30s at night. Once those temps become consistent however, we move them indoors. Wet or damp mixed with cold is no good for them for extended periods. If dry enough, they handle pretty chilly temps and will dig down to sleep.
