No keep it on --- run your lights like you normally do --- if she goes into full brumation then you can turn the UVB off but for now I would do as you normally do especially if shes still basking - she could just be going thru a lazy period now -- mine do the same lay around in their hides and not come out some days -- its just them --

Hi,

Just wanted to update, Nigel is still sleeping. Some days she fully asleep, others she is in her hide with her eyes open. I suppose she decided to brumate. It has been 2 months now...

How long does brumation last?

1-3 months -- are you keeping her hydrated? And a weight on her?

I have her soak in water once a week. I also drop water on her nose. She’s terrible about drinking. Always been a struggle with her.

Weight is still good.

Ok good -- I heard 3 months was the longest to let it go for brumation but someone else could correct me - so just keep an eye on her and if she emerges offer her food - she may or may not eat

I would have to say brumation has got to be the most stressful part of having beardies. No matter how much we know it is a natural process it ALWAYS makes us second guess if something else is wrong. Just keep up with the monitoring, most important is not having drops in weight.

Yes! It is stressful. I’ll keep a close eye on her 😁
