::::Hello Jesus,
:: Sounds like you are doing everything right, is it possible that he is getting ready to shed? Check his skin color and see if his eyes are "fogging up". If not, give him two more weeks, (and keep trying to feed him). If you don't have any luck, go ahead and let him brumate.

:
: no hes not in shed. its been almost 2 weeks already and nothing iam offering him food ever other day and hes not taking it, he doesnt look sick , i think i will cool him down, but for how long you think i should cool him??? 3to4 weeks.


If he is in good shape health wise, chill him until the middle to end of February. Make sure you have water available and a good hide box. Most keep their animals in darkness during this time. If possible cool down gradually to the 50's. You will be surprised at how little weight your animal will have lost and he will be ready to go again once you bring him back up to spring temps. DB
