I have 2 Phrynosoma platyrhinos that I've had for almost a year. The winter has been rough on them and my female hibernated for a month. I'm worried about my male because he stored fat for winter and hibernated steadily for a month, got up for a month, shed alot of his weight and has now been hibernating for 3 months in which time he got up twice looking thin both times. Should I dig him up and try feeding him or leave him be?
