Only brumated for 2 days?!

Postby spookyfaces » Thu Nov 05, 2020 8:56 am

Hello,
My beardie (who is about 3 years old now) has been acting really strange.. 2 days ago my beardie went in his cave, which he usually does most days but then goes back to his basking spot after a few hours, but this time he didn’t go back to his basking spot and stayed there for 2 whole days. I assumed he was beginning to brumate, especially because he wasn’t eating a lot days prior, so I turned off his lights and left him alone. Yesterday he came out of his cave and returned to his basking spot? He had stress lines as well. What’s wrong with him?

Hes probably stressed that his sun and heat are turned off lol. Sounds like he got cold and wanted to bask.

You've never wanted to hide under the covers for 2 days and then go back to normal? Haha :D

Sounds like he probably wasn't brumating, just in a mood.

Figment (1 year old) has been doing that off and on since early October, though I don't turn off his lights... I'm wondering about it, too. His appetite isn't what it used to be, and he hasn't pooped in two weeks. Otherwise, he's totally normal!

Personally not really unless i’m feeling sick myself lol, but I gave him a bath then he pooped normally and seemed like he was back to his old self. Just gonna keep observing him for now. Thanks for the response!

Same here! I’ve been having to give him belly massages to get him to poop the last few times. But there are no signs of impaction. Mojo seemed to be doing better today though, so i’ll just see how he is these next few days for now
