its almost midnight and i just got home to find suki fast asleep like this above her is where i keep her nocturnal heat lamp just incase, im thinking about turning her normal lights back on to see what she does since shes been under the heat one all day
story time: my mom asked me where suki was at like 5am (felt like five) and i was half asleep and told her she was in her bed like she had been sleeping days in, my mom took suki from her bed and i fell back asleep i woke up a few hours later and went downstairs to see my mom had pulled up a chair for suki turned on the fireplace for my lizard offered her a treat on a plate and even had blankets and everything for my lizard it brought me to realize how much suki is to me and how i have been ignoring her lately (she has been sleeping because she is brumating) so my chores of bathing her, buying her food and keeping it alive have gone away so it feels like shes not even here but she is indeed still here. i spent a few hours with suki petting her and i went to go make a bottle for her
shoutout to this small business on etsy, LOOK HOW CUTE!! suki already has a collar as some of you may know, but adding a nametag to the bell would be so cute omg on etsy for $9.99+ USD (10.99 for nametag too) omg
for those who have been wondering about suki (if we have been on your mind) she is a-ok as far as i know, she has been brumating. last time i woke her up i gave her a whole squeeze bottle of water (she drank it on her own) filled with probiotics and bee pollen and let her go back to sleep activity has decreased drastically for the last week she has been in her bed under her smol quilt, asleep. i keep on a 75 watt nightime light sold for nocturnals so they can be warm near her but not on her im confident if she were to wake she would seek warmth (why the 75 watt is kept on during the day) i have chosen to leave her uvb and her main light off but the 75 watt is running the normal hours that the main lights do, but doesnt produce enough light to disturb her eating - she has not eaten anything in a month i believe potty - has yet to go to the bathroom (since before brumating she has not gone) i gave her olive oil before i let her do her thing and baby food bc people were telling me to force her to go to the bathroom, so i tried but she didnt. i consulted with my mom who isnt a vet either and she said to let her do her thing she is an animal infact and they know what theyre doing so ive laid off but suki is okay :))
her fat pads are sinking noticably, since shes not eating and i believe is in brumation, is this normal??
honestly this is such a great idea: purchase @beardie.store they just opened and this is by far the most creative harness ive seen. suki already has a collar with a bell for this purpose of hearing her, but now theres a comfortable fitting harness @beardie.store #beardeddragonsofig #beardie #beardeddragonsetup #lizard #lizardsofinstsgram #ilovemylizard #ilovemyreptile #reptile #herp #herpsofinstagram #herpderp #bearded #dragon #beardeddragon
