Is your BD currently brumating ?

I agree he's probably not feeling well for some reason. He's not really brumation because he's not sleeping. My 10 yr.old boys are both sleeping now for almost a month and they never have a black beard and they rarely wake up. One will wake up for a little water or a few bugs during brumation , he just started doing that [ waking up ] this year, in the past he always slept through for about 3 months solidly like his brother.

I hope your boy is O.K and there will just be something easy to correct or easy for him to get over.

Thanks. Rocky’s appetite is as big as today. Loves to eat.
None of my previous 4 dragons slept for several months. That sounds like hibernating. A tortoise I had did sleep through a couple of months.

Brumation is the equivalent of hibernation for reptiles. They can sleep for months just like many mammals do. For the cold blooded critters the term is brumation though.

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
