buddy
Buddy has been in brumation since September 30th, is when he officially stopped coming out of hiding, he hasn't come out since he moves every id say day or two sometimes up to 4 days, he doesnt like the light so i cover his box up, with a towel that only he uses, i know i shouldn't worry about him but i know they don't always go into brumation completely this is his first brumation so i'm trying to see if its normal for him to be sleep this long and what do i do when he wakes up and does come out. Thanks!!

When was he out last? Please pull him offer him water and check his weight-- did you get a weight on him before he went into brumation or know how much he was weighing at the time?

So I take my boy out once a week to get a weight and offer some water. Most of the times he stays out for a couple of days after that.
If he doesn't loose weight you do not have to worry about him sleeping at all. If he sleeps over 4 months it might be time to try to trigger him out of brumation though.

Hello,

His size looks the same so he is definitely maintaining his weight. Can you post a picture or video of him, walking, moving, etc since you mentioned that he was having some trouble walking? That would help out a lot.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
