Hello fellow Beardy Lovers,

I have a 4 year old female beardy and she has started sleeping and going into her winter shutdown (brumation) period. The only thing that I am slightly concerned about is the fact that she has not pooped for quite a while and was eating quite well prior to her winter shutdown. I was giving her baths and trying to see what I could get out of her and nothing. I am hesitant to bathe her now as I don't really want to disturb her while hibernating or throw off her cycle. On the other hand, once she is done her hibernation, I don't want her to be blocked up and have difficulty pooping. So, what do you all think? Despite the fact that she's in hibernation, should I take her out to bathe her to try and get her to poop, or should I just let things be for now and wait until she comes out of brumation again?

Any suggestions and advise would be awesome.

Thanks.
