Tortoise Awake Feb. 27th
Tortoise emerges from hibernation. It is earlier than last year, but he is eating well and up everyday to sun. He has moved from his hibernation spot to his usual summertime place. He was very light when I picked him up to examine him. He has already put on weight. I blame his early awakening on El Nino as the bees, coyotes and birds are also off of their typical behavior. I have a hibernating turtle, but she usually comes out of hibernation in April.
