DON'T let Sparx brumate this year - he is too young, and growing too fast to be able to survive. Only fully grown adults should be allowed to brumate.

I wouldn't have thought he would try as he is so young.Just keep doing everything you are doing now - uv/lamp on 12 to 14 hrs a day and feed him the same and you shouldn't have any problems.

i think pogo is trying. his appetite has decreased largley he is always going under his branch and dropping asleep. he usually always basks but now he is in the cool end asleep. i got a vets appointment but if it is clear and behaviour persists what is the action. at tho mo i keep puttin him on his baskin spot and trying to do everything else normal.

As long as they've been checked for intestinal parasites and are otherwise healthy just maintain your current routine, when this has happened with our babies they go through about a six week period of lethargy then just bounce back. It's nerve wracking but you all survive OK.

Hi,

I've noticed that our beardie seems to be slowing down a bit. He's less than a year old and I have found that when I come home from work at about 5pm he is at the top of the tank on the rock background asleep or bobbing off. I took him out the other day to say "oi wake up" and put him on the floor, he just looked around then slowly bimbled over to the vacuum cleaner which he crawled under and curled up into a ball and went back to sleep. So I moved him onto our bed where he usually has a bomb around, instead he sat there looking v sleepy, then just curled up and went asleep again. He's still eating because the locusts in his tank have all gone and he ate his veg today.

Brumation?

Cheers,

Dan

As long as he is eating and pooing fine then I wouldn't worry too much, it probably is a 'slowing down' as Rick says. If he is still growing he shouldn't brumate, so keep the temps up.

Sounds like it - this year just carry on as normal but don't get too concerned if they go off their food for up to 6 weeks!
