Long brumation, next steps?

Postby AstroPoet » Fri Jan 24, 2020 2:40 pm

Hi everyone,
My bearded dragon Jade has been brumating since October. Yesterday I woke her up for a bath and she basked for a pretty good amount of time and ate a few bites of food and went back to bed. I was planning on bathing her pretty soon so she can have a chance to go to the bathroom. She is about 6 and a half and she hasn’t brumated for this long before and I’m wondering how often I should offer food since now she has shown some interest. Also when should I expect her to finish brumation?
Thank you!

Did you happen to weigh her before she went to bed? I would get a weight on her and make sure shes hydrated -- did she drink in the bath? I would get her out every 10 days or so and hydrate her or at least offer her water and keep a weight on her-- I have no idea how long she will fully awake -- 3 months I would think she would be coming out of it - I heard someone say 6 months and that is way to long --
