Spring

                                Spring has sprung here in the desert

The water turtles have this awesome ability to shut down their systems during the winter months so they can stay underwater without needing to come up for air or food. Sometimes if it get unseasonably warm they might come up to catch some sun rays but they go back down. We can always tell when the warm spring weather is here to stay because they come up and they are HUNGRY.

  2. Gosh - that's pretty cool! You know - I've always wished that I had the ability to hibernate during the summers here to avoid all the sweating and heat rashes.

  5. Howdy Mates, our lizard sissy is the same but she is starting to shut down and hybernate now the weather is changing. She usually 'sleeps' for about 4-5 months without eating or drinking! Mum thinks it is amazing. Love hearing about your turtle friends. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
