Default Lizard slow down on eating during cold winter days???

I have noticed that both of my Steppe runner and Emerald tree skink started to eat less in these few days. Does all the lizars will slow down on eating during in the cold winter days? I am living in Canada and our temperature is -25C in outdoor but my room temperature is 28C.

Most lizards will slow down during the cooler winter months. You need to weigh them every couple of weeks to make sure they are not losing much weight. A healthy lizard will maintain weight during this time. If they lose more than about 10% of their weight then there may be a problem which will need a vet.
