Beardie has been asleep for about a week with food in him

Postby TheCoreyHall » Sun Mar 24, 2019 5:30 pm

So I think about 8 days ago I fed him a bunch of roaches, then he found a dark space under my bed and fell asleep. Hes been there since. Im pretty sure hes still alive, but worried about him being under there for so long without heat and with food in him. Should I have pulled him out and gotten him back in the heat, or trust that he knows what hes doing? Hes about 5 years old now, but this is probably the longest hes gone without moving while sleeping. Usually he will come out a little bit and get some heat.

Why is he under your bed? What is the temp in your room and under your bed? It should not be dropping below 65 -- I would be putting him back in his tank

It's possible he is trying to brumate or is perhaps unwell. Regardless, I'd get him out & put him back in his viv. so he gets his necessary light & UV. If he's trying to brumate, he'll go into his hide (provided he has one, which he should). If not, he'll hopefully bask & be able to digest his food.

He fell asleep under the bed im assuming because its dark. I keep my place relatively warm, around 76 so I think he was good on that end. I ended up taking him out putting him in light. Hes all good.
