    So I have been doing a lot of research on Chinese Water Dragons and I just found out that they hibernate! What can I do to prepare for when they hibernate and what should I do when they are in Hibernation? And do they also hibernate in humid places? -Thanks!

    Hey all! So recently my tortoise (horsefield), has been doing some strange behaviour. He's digging in the corner of his table, which is close to the basking area and tends to just sleep there. Im certain he's not digging because he's cold, as he has a cool side to go to (18-20oC average) I...

    My 14-month old Horsfield has started slowing down recently and isn't interested in eating and would sleep all day if I let her. I'm presuming she's getting ready for hibernation and have reading up on this but still am slightly confused. When can I start the 2 week winding down period? How long...

    We've recently rehomed a 5-year-old Horsfield. We made him a big tort table and we've ensured he has a combi lamp with temperatures from 29 - 34degrees. In the cold end of his table it's about 20degrees. Problem is he sleeps all of the time. He only seems to get up when gently encouraged...

    Is it normal for baby Bearded Dragons to sleep standing up on hind legs in the corner of the vivarium? Or is mine a bit strange?:ooo: He props himself up behind a plastic cactus in the corner and sleeps there all night on his hind legs. Had Idris a week now. He seems happy and is eating fine...

    Hey everyone. Just thought I would post on here asking for some advice. I own 2 Herman Tortoises, Every year their eating patterns are ok and as they are both young I've always followed my vets advice and not hibernated them. Now the problem I'm having is the bigger of the two has been asleep...
