Brumating for 7+ months??

Postby SuchAClassicGirl » Sat Jul 20, 2019 1:11 pm

Hey there. Our guy was less than a year when going into brumation. He’s been brumating for over 7 months now and this seems extremely excessive. We do keep his light/heat schedule to the normal routine and have woken him up and taken him out weekly for a bath/hydration session. He’s got water and dried food available at all times and we’ve offered Dubias after bath time (or bath and basking which he does do for a while afterwards) but he’s not interested. By the next morning he’s back asleep in his hiding spot/box.

Some times he has his bath and we let him hang out and he actually seems very active. After a few hours...goes back to sleep until we wake him up again. Can anyone please shed light on what we’re doing wrong?

Please post pics of your tank and lighting --- we need basking temps and is it winter where you are? Brumation for a less than a 7 month old is odd---- how are you taking basking temps? infrared heat gun they are most accurate-- digital probe? or stick ons?

Seven month brumation is def. too long. Do post pics of the set up, here's how :

Hello,

I agree, 7 months is too long for a brumation. I can see 4-5 months or so, but really anything
longer than 6 months you need to pull them out.
As suggested, please review your tank setup with us, as well as post some pictures of your
dragon & your tank, etc for us.
