Brumation time.....

Postby beardedlady1 » Mon Jun 21, 2021 8:38 pm

Show of hands whos beardie is in Brumation??

What do you typically do when they are asleep??
Do you do anything special for them?? Or do you just leave them alone till they wake up in 2-3 months?

I made Ranger a carrot cabbage salad today (I doubt he will eat it but its there if he wants it) and cleaned up his tank. I don't wanna bug him he's sleeping under his lounger. I put him in the shower earlier and pooped him. I was worried he would get corked up.. I've heard some stories. I also didn't know want him to get dehydrated (once again he probably didn't need it but I've heard some stories. So I did it.) lol he sorta slept through that too lol (it was a soft warm sprinkle and he was sitting on my hand. Totally safe.) He then ate some silkworms, climbed back up his lounger, and drifted back to sleep. I've turned his lights back off. Lights only came on for worm digestion.

I wonder how long he will brummate this year. 🤔 last year it was 2 months. Hes been in Brumation for about 2 weeks now.

His tell was he ate like a vicious monster for a straight week. (Hes NOT a voracious eater in any means. Hes a food waster unless its what he wants at that very moment. Picky)

Please no more cabbage ---- here is a nutrition website ignore the kale thing its a good staple feeder

Your dragon should not be in brumation now --- unless it is winter where you are --- my guess there is a basking temp issue a UVB issue or your dragon is sick ---

I'm in Florida he doesn't brumate during our winter because we don't have a winter. He starts when we jack up that AC during our hottest months. June July and August. He's just confused but he does it every year same time. He has his T5 light in with a reflector. He's just slow going and sleepy.
