Thats what worries me. I know during brumation theyre supposed to be lazy and not move much but mine is lazy only like 50% of the time. The rest of the time hes runnin around the tank so i have to let him out.
Much of what I read says it is important to wake them up and give them a bath every few days so that they don't dehydrate. In the wild this takes care of itself, but most cages do not have a natural moisture source under his/her vent that would facilitate hydration.jaidonx13":1y5vd9y0 said:Brumation was scary for me when mine first went into it. I thought he was dead, I gave him a wiggle and he came back, but is it ok to wake your beardie while they are in brumation?

Bottom line is to recognize the signs and not freak out. Just let nature take its course.
