    Brumation

    Hi guys! I have had my little guy (Eddie) for about 10 months now, he is about 11 months old. I have been trying to get in contact with my original breeder but no response. As this is eddies first time brumating (I think) I am a little anxious. I have done a lot of research but has so specific...

    False brumation or something?

    Kazoku for the two years he's been alive does something strange around November, December, and a bit of January. He'll refuse to eat once the cold winter days have taken hold of our city, however that's where that detail ends. Kaz is still as alert and active as any other season, maybe vibing...

    Failure to thrive, or ill-timed brumation?

    Hi, Montero is a 1.5-year-old female bearded dragon. Early November she tested positive for coccidia and received two rounds of oral antibiotics. A fecal sample after treatment tested negative for coccidia. I originally tested her for parasites because she was losing her appetite and sleeping...

    Beardie Hiding All Day! Vet Says Too Much Calcium? Please Help!

    Hello, I took my Beardie in for a visit to the vet, as she's been spending more and more time in her hide, eating less and pooping less often, and it's really worrying me. She looks normal otherwise and does have better days here and there. The vet told me as follows (please forgive me if this...

    Brumating, Gravid, Sick, Stressed?

    Hi! So my smol lady is brumating (I think?). Since early October she's been refusing food, chilling in her hide or on a warm rock under her hammock, and not pooping nearly as much. However, all of this is only *sometimes*. I'm nervous about it because this would be her first winter brumating...

    What more can I do for my beardie’s bones.?

    Unfortunately this year his bones started getting worse again right when he started brumation, so I haven’t been able to help him as well as I did when it was hotter. Before, I would give him more calcium powder more often in his foods, take him outside in the sun safely for hours, and not feed...

    Beardie Acting Wild After Brumation- Not Eating Much

    Hi Everyone! Drogon is now out of brumation for about 2 months and is acting like a black-bearding lunatic :) I expect this is normal since it's happened in the past. However, he's being annoyingly picky about his food!!! He'll only eat supers, sometimes has no interest at all and won't even...

    Brumation

    I am a first time beardie owner so brumation is completely new to me. My beardie is around 8 months old, I think she's about 360 grams, and I've noticed for the past couple of weeks she has been hiding around the corner of her tank, not sleeping just laying there, eating less, and pooping less...

    Wintertime adoption

    Hey! 's me again. I will be getting a bearded dragon within the next month. I'm not worried about costs or stock, etc, I'm mostly just worried about if winter is a good time to get them? I know that they brumate when it's colder, but does this mean that adopting and bonding with one will be...

    Sudden Aggression During Fall

    So, this may just be because of brumation, but I thought better safe than sorry. Paul has been doing great, about a month ago a noticed they made a pretty deep burrow under a piece of wood in there enclosure; she was very fond of it, some times she wouldn't even come out to eat and stay in...

    Brumation or enclosure issues??!

    Hello dragon daddies & mommies! This here is RIDLEY and he's not acting like his usual self. He has been hiding for a couple weeks and now sleeping in his little cave.

    Grumpy baby or something else?

    Hi all! I have an 11 month old (est) male beardie and I'm a little concerned with his current behavior. Now I did move out from my parents (finally!) to an apartment a little over two weeks ago. During the move I gave him superworms since he loves them and he will gladly eat them. He's back to...

    Brumating in summer?

    This has probably been asked many times but I'm finding conflicting information. Some people say it's normal, some say to contact a vet immediately. So basically my beardie has been slowing down since late May (basking less, refusing to eat greens), and now has been staying in his hide for a...

    Hi - I've had my (aprox.) 5 YO Beardie since Dec. I have a Zen Habitats 4 x 2 x 2 with proper lighting and I use a CHE at night as my house gets down to about 60 at night. My question is... he appears to be brumating (he's been in his hide 24/7, eyes closed on and off) for the last 3-4 weeks. I...
