So its been a while since I have posted purely because my daughters pet has been asleep for so long....

Bella was a rescue Beardy (well some kind of Rankins / Beardy cross) and had a great 6 months before she went into brumation. She dug into her sand under her log made a nice bed and went off to sleep, this was at the end of October, so here we are now and she is still zonked out.

She moves around a bit but is still fast asleep, I guess my question is how long do they sleep for ? Should I be warming up the viv, putting some light on or just leave her ?

Normal time is around 3~4 months so I'd be thinking about starting to lift the temps now to encourage waking up.

Wouldn't be a bad idea but do see that there's something to hide behind.
