Hi everyone. I haven't posted since fall because my Collareds were sleeping and there wasn't anything for me to post about. This was my first time hibernating lizards, and I was very nervous when I started to warm them back up, wasn't sure what to expect. Thankfully all 3 made it through the winter just fine. No noticable weight loss, and all are active and eating. They've been awake since early March, just took me a bit to get some new pics.

Freckles was the first to wake up...

Closer shot of Freckles. I'm not sure what type of Collared she is and welcome any suggestions...

Daisy woke up a few days later...

Closeup of Daisy. I believe she is an Eastern...

And Percy finally decided to join the party about a week later. He is normally a very nice mint green color, I'll try to get some better pics after he sheds.

Closeup of Percy. I believe he is an Eastern...

All 3 together...

I'm so thankful that they survived their hibernation and are doing fine. I won't worry so much about them next year :-)
