My bearded is suddenly swollen while brumating, I thought he was dead for a minute but moved, he’s very deep in sleep. Is this normal?

Can you post a picture of him?

How long has he been brumating?

From the picture, he looks normal to me.

He will feel cold if he isn't actively basking. Reptiles don't produce body heat, they can never be warmer than their environment. I would just let him be. As long as he isn't losing weight noticeably quickly, it's just brumation.

Hello,

I agree, based on the picture he looks normal. His beard is normal color & it doesn't
appear that there is swelling on his hands, feet, etc. Is his weight stable, the best that
you can determine?

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

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
