My sweetheart boy woke up yesterday afternoon, had some water dropped on his snout- he lapped it up. Basked all day until 5 PM and wanted to go to bed. I let him sleep on me until 9 PM. Off and on, I checked on him and he had his eyes wide open despite being in a semi-darkness because I have a light. I took him out, let him sleep on me. An hour later, I put him back in and leave him alone. Cover him. I went to check on him and he he's awake. It's 12:44 AM and nearly the whole time, he's awake. Been awake all this time. Is this normal after a week to two weeks brumation? He's very clingy, too.

He hasn't really shown any interest in greens yet. I gave him a piece and he ate one piece. Then decided no more.

It can take a few days for them to get back up to speed. His appetite should start improving

Oh good! The last time, he was awake for a whole month. When there was a cold snap, he ate some greens and pooped, soaked, and went back to sleep the very next day. I only woke him up once for drinks of water. He accepted it, basked a bit, and went back to sleep that same day. Then today, he woke up and looked so lost. He's sleeping on me know listening to some classical music. LOL.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
