Hey guys,

So I had posted recently about my 9yo dragon who seems to be serious about brumating this year and I have some more specific questions. As i had mentioned before, in the past she has brumated a little - sleeping more, eating less etc - but always coming out every few days to bask, soak, poop etc.

This year, however, she is sleeping most of the time and seems pretty intent on brumating. I'm thinking it may be time to actually decrease her light time and help- her through the process.

Questions though...

1. She did sort of "wake up" the other day. I soaked her and she drank readily and pooped (she had eaten superworms a week or so before) basked a bit for that day and now is back to sleep. When/if she does this again - should I be offering food at this point? Im concerned about her eating and then going back to sleep with a full belly...but im also concerned about her not eating for so long
2. If she does continue to brumate should I wake her to soak her once a week or anything to let her rehydrate?

How do you guys do it with your guys? Im just not sure how to handle this process - especially since she will sleep for several days to a week and then wake up randomally...how do i proceed here?

thanks!
