Thanks for the advice, what exactly am I looking for with checking his weight?

Wouldn't it be normal if he loses some weight during this period?

Yes it can be usually they will sustain it but losing some is not abnormal - maybe 10 grams or so

Good luck, it's difficult during these times but it's also natural and he may need to brumate.

Hi thak for the reply, my basking temps are 25~27c.

Currently still waiting for my UVB long tube fixture, so currently no UVB light.

Dragon is around 9~11 months I believe. Could someone recommend a good hiding decor fixture that he would be comfertable in?
Hi 👋

I love this hide (it’s like halfway hide I guess - but that’s what I like about it) - if you’re looking for something that’s comfy and easy for them to get in/out of …

She also has a square basket with a thicker fluffy blanket I put inside that’s turned on it’s side so she can go into and curl up in. I can easily check in on her / she’s not completely hidden away, but she uses it so she seems to feel separated enough and peacefully away from the world.

I shut off all lights as well, so it’s not like she’s getting a bunch of disruptive light coming into this tent or her basket (which is good, that’s what her and I both want)

Sometimes I’ll even toss one of her super super light weight blanket halfway over one of the tent openings or the basket opening. She’s a deep sleep type brumater, so she likes a little privacy 😊

But also you can just Google bearded dragon hides and you’ll see a ton of different hide variety’s - some full on closed off, some made of hard material, some soft like this - you can shop around for what you like and what you think your guy would like 🙂

You can “make” a hide too by just using things around the house - like the basket I use for her bed - it was just some older home decor I wasn’t using anymore - I like using stuff like that.

If you do like it, just copy and paste this into the Amazon search bar:

Tinkare Reptile Sleeping Bed Bearded Dragon Tent Hude Habitat Shelter

(These are photos off Amazon - that beardie is just a model, it’s not my girl 😊)

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. 😔
Mirage entered brumation yesterday, I'm gonna miss hanging out with my little guy.
