Mine are not --- they should not brumate for over 3 months -- if they are still in brumation you need to check tank temps check weight -- if all is good there then a vet visit might be in order -- from what I understand something else could be going on if they are still brumating after months --

Mine are up. When did yours go down? My one girl went down early, in Sept and woke up in Jan. 4 months or so is normal for her and from what I understand isn't uncommon at all.

Mine didn't just instantly enter, he kinda gradually started to sleep more and more in his hide until he wouldn't come out for days or weeks. This started around New Years. Whenever he comes out, he's also pretty lazy, and doesn't move much. Also he hasn't touched a salad this entire times, only bugs sometimes. By his appearance there doesn't seem to be anything unhealthy tho.

Sounds normal. All beardies are on their own schedule and go down and wake back up differently.

Mari is still brumating, but she started in mid February because it’s her first time. It’s okay if they brumate until it’s warm enough to take them outside and have them get actual sunlight.

I’d be so sad if I didn’t have Mari keeping me company that long. I’d probably go to staples and print a life-size picture of her on some heavy card stock and position it on her rock looking at me if she was asleep that long just so I wouldn’t go crazy 😂
