When I got home from work today, instead of seeing Pookie hanging out on his tree branch or snuggling up to Mr. Bear or just laying around, all I saw was this:

Yes, Pookie somehow managed to tuck himself in a burrito and decided to start brumation early. I still have no idea how he did it.

Because of this, I didn't get my nightly Pookie snuggles. Luckily I had a surrogate snuggler -- Buddy! But it's just not the same as my Pooks :(

Awww, makes you want to reach in the computer and give him a snuggle. lol This is the first year that Magick and Semi haven't showed they wanted to slow down. Magick and Semi have slowed way down on eating because Phil is gone for the week and I went back to work but they wait for me to come home before snuggling up. Normally they are awake only a few hours a day by now.

He's so cute, snuggled up in his home-made burrito. Aren't beardies something else, they do things you'd never expect a beardie to do. He looks so snuggable, but is he brumating? Wow, guess he thought of everything, except how to snuggle with you :( Beardie snuggles are the best, hope he wakes up soon.

I was just thinking the other day that I had not seen any pics of Pookie or Buddy lately. It certainly does look like someone is wanting to do a little brumating :roll: I love that he got himself into that burrito :shock:
I think you have a little houdini on your hands :lol:

Yeah! What's up with the cheerios Gina? Was that Pookies breakfast yesterday? :roll:

There is no way I am going to let Bliggy's godbrother eat cheerios as a staple! :roll:

I gave those to him as a treat, about 2 weeks ago. He'd get about 4 or so a week, and I think the crunching sound was what enticed him. But suddenly he wouldn't eat anymore, thus the few sitting by his tree branch.

Given Pookie was only a baby when I had him last winter, I have no idea what he's like going into brumation. However, seeing that he burrito'd himself, I would have to guess that he's ready and willing for a long slumber. :(

When his lights went on this morning, he wasn't the slightest bit amused. After a couple of hours of what seemed like the hopes of turning the lights off by osmosis, Pookie finally gave in and turned himself around and completely covered up his head underneath the towel. I'll upload pics of my sad Pookie in a few.

Awww poor Pookie.... I wanna give him a big cuddle now.... Kazi didnt even bother to get up until 3pm today - his full time 'mum' is on holiday and, as everyone else started work at 8 am, Kazi got his lights switched on, his salad put in and his blankie removed from the top of him (but still cosy underneath him). I came in at 3pm to find him still lying, half asleep on the blankie!! Tis the season for sleepy beardies :(

Lilly still really loves to come out for cuddles even though she's brumating. She actually fights me about going back in her tank.

Awww, so sleepy and grumpy. That's how I feel every morning Pookie. Maybe we could tell my boss that I'm brumating, and then Pookie and I can spend all winter burritoed up together.

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?
