brumation

Postby amelia1 » Thu Jan 14, 2021 5:52 pm

my bearded dragon was sleeping for about 3 weeks, then woke up. i fed him a few mealworms, he was awake for about a week then went back to sleep for another week and woke back up for another few days, ate a few mealworms and is now back asleep. is this normal? he hasn’t pooped either and i’m worried about the food rotting in his stomach. i have given him baths

That is normal --- keep him hydrated --- he will be fine --- I would not feed him just meal worms tho- he needs a staple feeder like crickets dubia roaches or silk worms -- he needs salads as well --- the next time he comes out offer him one of those staples I recommend dubias and salad -- and water -- weigh him on a kitchen food scale in grams and keep track of his weight -- is he basking at all after he eats?
