i have a 9mth old female beardie who over the last week or so has started to go asleep really early! my temps are fine at both ends and she is eating but not as much as usual! it feels like she may be going into Brumation and in the summer too!! the lights are on for 13 hours, they come on at 8am and off at 9pm, she was very active over the winter months and the lights were on for 12 hours

is this normal

i have also moved her into another new viv which is bigger than her old one and introduced a new female, they seem to get on fine!

so any advice would be greatly appricated

What are the temperatures? You would not believe the number of people who say "my temperatures are perfect" when they're anything but...

The fact that she's done it since you put her with another one suggests that there could be some dominance / intimidation issue there, or it could be due to moving her into a new viv. If the new viv is colder than the other one was, it could cause her to slow down a bit. Photos of the setup would also help people to see if there's anything obviously wrong with it...

Those temperatures sound fine and nothing immediately jumps out about the setup apart from the position of the thermostat probe; it needs to be in the cool end, as it's there for safety, not to regulate the basking end...

It could be relocation stress, or it could be due to being intimidated. I doubt it will be brumation at this time of year...
