do my baby RES need to hibernate? They\'ve been hiding under their plant quite a lot recently.
Also, they\'re VERY shy; how can I make them for friendly?

If you have your turtle set up inside, there is no reason for them to go into hibernation. You can if you want, but its risky, and not necessary. If they live outside, then you would need to take steps to help them into hibernation, or bring them in warmer temperature.
About them hiding, thats ok, sometimes they feel safer hiding. Just give them some time. You can handle them occasionally if you wish, but I would just let them be. Mine came out of hiding when they realize I\'m the one that feeds them. Now they can\'t stay away from the glass when I\'m by the tank.
Hope that helps:)
