Hello,

These crazy dragons, so many of them have this type of restless behavior when they come out
of brumation. It sounds like her hormone levels are high & she is most likely looking for a mate
or could even be developing eggs. Essentially you can equate it to having spring fever to an
extent.
That's good she had a few bites of veggies though. It may take a few weeks for her appetite to
fully pick up., or even longer sometimes. Her metabolism has been slown down for awhile & it
takes some time for it to rev back up. It sounds like she isn't losing weight but as suggested, I
would try to keep track of her weight if possible to be sure she doesn't lose too much.
Her body condition looks good in the picture though!
Keep trying to offer foods & eventually she'll start eating again. You could try some bee pollen
to see if that helps to pick up her appetite.

Okay, I got a scale and weighed her. She's somewhere between 440-445g so whatever weight she's lost in the past two months it's been very little.
