Hey there everyone! Denise Bushnell has put together a great article to help explain the mystery of brumation. Ever wonder why a beardie seems to slow down with a decreased appetite, but everything else seems healthy? While symptoms of lethargy and lack of appetite may be a sign of a health problem, it could also be that your bearded dragon is going through a period of brumation! Check out this new article to find out more and gain a bit more of an understanding of brumation!

And don't forget to check out the other helpful and informative articles available on

Thanks Denise, for getting this great article put together!

This article is really comprehensive, informative and fun to read! :laughing6: I haven't seen anything better on the subject! Thanks to you Denise, for your well-spent time and effort, and to Beardie for posting it here (and all the other work you do here!) Kudos to both of you!

thanks so much for this! Though i could have used it three months ago. my bindi just woke up from a 2 month brumation. In the summer! we tried everything we could think of for helping him eat and be active again. changing uvb bulb, heat lamps, syringe feeding, ect. . . then i was told he's probably brumating so we let him be. the last two days now he just wants to run around and he ate (only one super and a few bites of escarole) and made a poo. I'm so exticed to see him waking up again. he is basking well and soaking in the UVB i just wish the weather was nicer so i could take him out again before it gets cold. thanks again.
amazing ...important info ...will be using that as a reference source a long time to come ..
thank you for taking the time to put it together.

So to any reading this, how on earth do I post a thread 😅 New here, possibly too old for this

Just Hazel in a filter I need so not posting on forums.

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?
