Default Whose tortoises are slowing down?

My ibera are well and truly winding themselves down, up to today they have stayed in the GH, no matter what the temps are. Today its already 26c and they were out first thing grazing but now disappeared into the GH again.

We've had many, many very hot days in a row and my Russians decided to estivate. Haven't seen them in a month or so. And now, even though the days are still hot, the nights are a lot cooler and the days are shorter. I worry that the tortoises won't have been able to "stock up" on groceries before they have to start slowing down for winter.
