Waking in middle of Hibernation

by Lana

Hi, I was wondering if I should give food to my desert tortise when she awakes during hibernation months. In the past two years she typically comes out of her hibernation box the first week of February, this year she went in her box a month early, and today (Jan. 16) she has come out. I always have fresh water for her. In the past she will drink and drink, pee and then go back in her box till about March.

I'm just wondering if I fed her food it may ferment in her system and kill her......thanks for your help
