Hey Everyone,

My one and a half year old female beardy has been inactive and sleeping 24/7 under her cork bark for the passed while. I know when beardys brumate, they have a lack of appetite, however, she will eat worms if I give them to her under the log. She won't come out, but still willing to eat if food is given to her. As I said, she is only a year and a half, and isn't that a bit early in their lives to start brumating? I am asking this because I have not been feeding her hardly anything the passed few weeks, and I want to be sure she is in fact brumating and not just being a lazy dragon. I don't want to deprive her of food if she still wants it.

I think most likely she is probably just brumating for her winter cooldown, but just wanted to check for some more opinions.

Thanks everyone!
