    Hey everyone, This may sound like a silly question but I'm curious either way. I'm planning on brumating my Diamond next winter, I was wondering if you can handle them during this period or if it's best to just leave them completely alone. To my surprise I couldn't find anything on this topic, but maybe that's just because it's common sense.. Thanks :)

    Best to leave them to do their thing, no handling, no feeding etc.

    Leave them be other than routine health checks.

    They'll probably be quite cross if you wake them during their brumation anyway... that's my experience.
