Please advise, Jan 2nd and my 3 year old Horsefield appears to be behaving as if preparing for hibernation (for the first time.) He is restless, constantly wanting out of his accommodation, where he has a quiet box he never uses, when he is removed from his accommodation he seeks a quiet, dark area in the house where he promptly settles down to sleep! He eats well but not as ravenous as usual.
Should I reduce his heat and food intake and prepare him for hibernation? Or am I being premature?
We live in SW Scotland if this has has any bearing on matters!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated....
