What you can do when new findings contradict to current practice and you are not able to change your keeping conditions directly?

Abstract

This is a comment to a previously published article by Jennemann (Schildkröten im Fokus, 10 (2): 3–22) which resulted among many tortoise keepers in a discussion how to achieve an optimal strategy to hibernate European tortoise species artificially in a refrigerator when no other options suggested such as outdoor or protected glass house hibernation will not be possible in order to achieve optimal conditions for the prevention of metabolic pathologies leading to a red plastron or carapace. In his article Jennemann has already addressed most of the points to which attention has to be paid specifically. Therefore here I try to explain some of his points hopefully in more detail and in a less scientific manner for everyone and I try to focus the attention especially to that points which relate to an optimal hibernation in a refrigerator pointing first to the needs of the tortoises, then to the physical characteristics of a refrigerator and last but not least pointing out how to hibernate tortoises in the refrigerator with a minimum of complication when the animals are healthy. I like to stress this last point specifically, because in this comment I do not describe how to treat tortoises before and in preparation to hibernation.

Key words

Chelonii, Testudinidae, Testudo, post-hibernal-red-shell-disease, artificial hibernation, refrigerator.
