We live in the california desert, so our regular daily temperatures are already up into the 70s. Much of what I read about her said hibernation was over around March.
Her current lamp is at 75w, and is on from 9:00am to 3:00pm. It is about 80 in her little house right now. At night it gets down to about 70. She has already been sleeping like this for about 4-6 weeks. I don't have anything in there right now that she can go into, because she outgrew her little house. Should I put her under something? Here is a picture:
We are getting ready to convert an outdoor portion of our yard for her to live it, as she is going to need more space than she has now. We took her because the person that had her received her as a gift and didn't want her. I am a sucker for a hard-luck pet!!!
How do I know if she is okay during this time???? I think she hibernated this year because it was really unusually cold this year, unlike last year. So even without a change in her heat light, she could feel it getting colder.
