And how old your turtles are, and if they\'re healthy. Turtles under 3 years of age shouldn\'t be allowed to hibernate. Neither should one that\'s recently been ill or injured.

I don\'t have a pond, but I know someone who does. I have learned from him that you need to make sure of a few things.

You need to make sure that the pond is deep enough so there is water below the \"freeze line\" or else the entire pond will freeze and your turtles would probably die.

You also need to make sure that your particular species of turtle is native to an area with similar winter conditions to where you live.

My friend found a turtle in his pond just a few weeks ago when he was cleaning out his pond. He figured that it had somehow \"run away\", but it was just hiding. It survived the winter her in southern NY. This winter we had a few major snow storms and a lot of temps way below zero.

Good Luck!
