Lighting schedule/Daylight savings

Postby SarahMr98 » Wed Nov 07, 2018 1:06 pm

Recently the time has changed and has set back an hour. My beardies lights are on a timer they would usually turn on at 6am and turn off at 8pm, now they turn on at 5am and off at 7pm. I’ve adjusted her feeding schedule back an hour as well (e.g.- she would be fed at 6 now she’s fed at 5). Should I set them back an hour aswell or just leave it alone? I’d prefer for her to not go into brumation. Would changing the lights make that more likely? It’s nearing my first full yeah with her so just trying to make sure I do it right!

You can change the schedule just like we changed our clocks, it will be fine. :)

I changed my schedule suddenly and haven't noticed problems either. In the past I've also brought the times into line slowly over the course of 4 days in 15 min increments but have found that to not really be necessary. It seems OK to just update the schedule to match ours and they adapt quickly.
