    Confused???

    Hi, I have a few questions.

    1. I brought two Pygmy Beardies around the middle of January this year so I'm guessing their around 4 months old and they're both girls so they are sharing the same enclosure but one is nearly half the size with the larger one around 30g and the smaller one 14g and I know this is very bad but what I'm asking is what I can do to help the smaller one grow. (I called them Kayda(Bigger) and Saphira(Smaller))

    2. They've both recently started to dig and the smaller one actually dug underneath the food bowl and near gave me a heart attack when I couldn't find her, does this mean they want to go into brumation?. The temperature also sits between 25-30c so should I up this temp?

    Any help is appreciated and thanked.

    You definitely need to up the temps, That should be your cool end, If they don't get warm enough they can't digest their food. You want about 40C at the basking spot.
    Digging usually means they want to brumate but they are too small

    Should I be heating them at night, I have a heat mat that runs 24/7 and have recently added a ceramic heater at night as where I am the temp was getting below 15c at night and i've been told that was bad so should I up this to keep them from going into brumation or is it okay for night time as I have the ceramic heater to switch on if the temp drops below 25c

    If your day time temps are warm enough you shouldn't need to heat at night, they actually do much better if allowed to cool right down at night.
