These were wild-caught in the high desert, three hours east of San Diego, above Temucula ... and it was getting frosty in August, so I'm fairly sure they normally hibernate. I've hibernated them for the previous two winters, but for those times I've cooled them a little more slowly, spending a week or so in transition from warm to cool. This time, I just dropped them into cool - I know, probably not the best, which is why I posted my question! They are still somewhat active and seem to be okay ... so I might have 'lucked out'. They are definitely fat and 'happy'
Thanks for your reply, and all the best with your lizards,
