Hi everyone! I have 3 yrs old desert tortoise that wants to hibernate. I would prefer she wai until 4 tears old. I have been Giving her baths but she just wants to sleep and isnt eating much. Is it safe to continue waking her up to bath her etc? Should I just let her hibernate. I'm calling Rosie a girl I don't know for sure. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A brighter, better UVB light on for 14 hours a day may fool him into thinking it's summer
