Not sure if he’s brumating

Postby Lexie1102 » Thu Nov 08, 2018 9:42 am

My Zeus just turned 2 and he brumated last year just fine but this year it’s a bit confusing. He’s been off feed for a while, but only went and slept in his hide for about several days. He sits under his basking area and takes short naps. He isn’t nearly as active as he was in the summer. He shows all signs of brumation except sleeping consistently. I’m not sure if he’s brumating I offer him food but for about a month he hasn’t wanted to eat but he hasn’t lost any weight he’s still at a healthy weight. Is this just a light brumation?

Everything sounds fine, my dragons go through a full brumation some years + the on again/off again sleepy time with loss of appetite every year. As long as his weight is pretty much the same [ or loses a little at most ] then it's fine. :)
