I've always brought my eastern box turtles in for the winter. This season I want to naturally brumate them to try to encourage breeding next season. They are native to my area (zone 7a) New Jersey. I'm looking to learn any information and tips on how safely do this process. I know I'm months ahead of schedule but I'm trying to have a good concept and the knowledge to feel 100% comfortable in doing so before the time comes. Thanks in advance.
