Do your Ornate's exhibit this behavior readily as in come out of hibernation when it warms and go back down into leaf piles, etc... when it's cold? I ask because some of mine do. Some stay hibernated all winter but a few individuals will come in and out of whatever area they've burrowed themselves into (usually leaf piles) depending on the weather. None of my three toed's has ever done this - not one ever in years. Only Ornate's (and again, only some, not all). Seems odd behavior - wondering if you or anyone else who keeps them experiences the same....

I've discerned no rhyme or reason to who pops up first each spring. Sometimes an ornate, sometimes a three-toed, sometimes a male, sometimes a female. Today I spied the same male ornate and an extremely old female three-toed cruising around. (I've had her 46 years and she looked old back when I found her crossing a neighborhood street.)
