During the past couple of days we have had around ten inches of snow. So what? Parts of the UK have had far more than that.
Well I’ll tell you so what!
A couple of days ago I discovered that we will have unexpected company for Christmas.
Henry hibernated on September 15th. A few years ago he would have hibernated later and emerged around mid-Februaryafter about 16 weeks. In recent years his hibernation has started earlier and the period of hibernation has become shorter. To re-emerge before Christmas is a new record. If this continues he will become a 100% indoor tortoise, hibernating briefly in the summer. Have any of my blog readers encountered a similarly awkward tortoise?
