I have an 8 year old hermanns and I was thinking about trying to hibernate him this winter. I have always kept him awake in the past. I’ve read up quite a bit on the subject but the idea of it still makes me a nervous wreck. I can’t decide if I should let him do it naturally in his cold frame section of his outdoor cage or if I should do it inside in a fridge. The winters here in Kansas can be real weird. One week it might be freezing cold with highs in the 20s and another week sunny and highs in the mid 40s. And there might be nights it gets into single digits. So that’s why the outside part scares me He is very healthy, is a little over 5 inches and weighs 528 grams. Any advice or ideas are welcomed.
