My baby is about 6 months old, 17 inches long and for the last two days all she has really done is sleep, I gave her some worms and crickets and she only ate the worms probably because they were right in front of her other than that she slept. From what I read It is very uncommon for dragons to brumate before they became adults. Just want to make sure she is ok if this is a health issue and I need to take her to the vet or if she is just brumating ???? thank you

Some younger dragons will go into a cool down/napping phase when they are big like your girl. She should be fine.

I figured she was ok just wanted to double check! So I can leave her in her tank, she shares it with another dragon, beardie, she doesnt seem to mind she is sleeping she just keeps walking around her

Did your dragons grow up together, and are you sure that they are both females ? Just be aware that they can inflict serious bites out of the blue after seemingly getting along fine, or a dragon that was thought to be a sister turns out to be a brother and suddenly decides to mate. Some females that are raised together do fine, others not so much.

Mirage entered brumation yesterday, I'm gonna miss hanging out with my little guy.
Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
