Did or are you going to cool them this winter? I cooled my male since the third week of October and he seems to be holding up great. Very fat still. I got a female from AR about 3 weeks ago and have had her in hibernation for 2 weeks now. She just about went down on her own. She spent the first couple days basking and then went under a rock and stayed there. I turned off the basking kight after a couple more days and left her at room temp for a week then in with the male in the cold hibernation room. She seems to have settled in nicely. I will probably warm them up about the beginning of February.
