Typically they can brumate for 3 months - so hes a little over the 3 month mark - I would start waking him up - offer water and food - he may not eat much tho and it takes time for them to get their appetites back

How would I do that? I have offered him food when he has been awake for a few days but doesn't eat them. He was coming out for a heat once a week then going back under his hide to sleep. Should I take his hide away? Any advice would be appreciated as it's the first time he has done it as he is only 18 months old.



Thank 😊 you

His lights are only on 10 hours should I put them back to 14 hours? I took this picture of him the other day when he was awake getting heat. I will send it to you.

So your basking bulb is really close- it should be at least 6 inches above him- I would put it at 12 hrs let's see what ahbd recommends

It is 6 inches away as we measured it to make sure the last time someone said it was too close. The bulb is up inside the lamp. Okay dokey :) thank you

Can you post a pic of the entire tank ? He looks healthy so he will probably get back to normal soon. And yes, definitely get the heat lamp further away, it's much too close.

Do I need to do anything? Like turn his heat up more put his light on longer? I just gave him some water there and he had a good bit. He doesn't know how to drink out a bowl so I have to drop it on his nose lol. I have turned his log around so it's lower at his basking spot. He is in this viv just now till we get his new one up and running. Will send a picture of them both. The one he is in just now is just standered

That's good that he drank, my dragons also use the " drip method " for drinking. He may be getting ready to come out on his own soon but if he doesn't do so within the next month you can put his cave log upside down so that should prompt him to abandon his sleeping quarters for the season. :)

He drinks every 2 days or so :) he has been really good with that. So should I just leave him for now? We put his heat back up yesterday should I turn it back down? And leave his lights to 10 hours or up it too 12 hours? It's stressing me out cause it's the first time he has done it lol

I would put everything back like normal except go w/ the 12 hrs basking - I would raise the basking light it looks so close- use your digital probe thermometer- to get your surface basking temps--

I have this that puts the lights on and off I don't know how it would work with the 2 different times for the basking and uv. My surfing basking spot is sitting at 38 degrees right now.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
