    Too early for brumation

    Hi there
    my 3 year old pygmy dragon seems like it wants to go into brumation.
    Is that normal this early? Could it be a sign of something else?
    not sure whay to do
    thank you

    I wouldn't worry too much, I have 4YO ,5YO , 8YO pygmies, 11YO and 8YO centrals and even 2YO dwarfs in their caves already but all my other dragons are still kicking and eating. They are various ages so there's no pattern, some male and some female.
    Make sure it poops before sleeping and don't feed it again. If you are sure it is brumating (because some go to sleep and then come out a week later) then turn off all heat. It would be good if all dragons turned off at say , 1st of April and woke up on 1st of September but this wont happen

    Yeah if he doesn't move for a week I'd call it quits. Just keep an eye on him for a month or so.
    I can remember my first winter, I kept poking them to see if they were alive
