My wife and I have a one year old Dalamatian Hermann's Tortoise. I recently I stalled a new house thermostat and set it incorrectly. I just realized for the past 1-2 weeks, the temperature on the living room where we keep the enclosure has been dropping to 16C/61F for a couple of hours in the early morning. I fixed it last night so it won't go below 18C. I am concerned I may have maybe triggered him to prepare for hibernation, which he is not equipped for and won't survive. I hope I fixed it in time. Should I be worried?
