2 year old hiding/not eating

For the past two weeks our 2 year old Beardie has been hiding, hardly eating/pooping. The temps have dropped here and I wonder if he is going into brumation. He is sleeping a lot more even when his tank lights are on. We have to hand feed him water through a dropper every day and he will drink that.

I am replacing his UV this week. Any other tips?

They will slow down in the winter- eat less etc-- you dont need to feed water every day - offer him water once a week - brumation is when they go into a deep sleep and not wake up for a while - semi brumation is when the sleep for a week or two and appear to come out to bask etc-

Hello,

They tend to go into brumation this time of year. Not all of them do but a good majority of them do.
Does he seem to be holding his weight right now? Be sure to read the article on brumation here on
the site, it is very insightful! They all seem to do a little something different.
Has he come out at all to say hello or bask?
