    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I have been seeing the word 'Brumation' all over the place. What exactly does it mean? looking at some other threads, i think my leo may be experiencing similar 'events'.

    thanks!

    Brumation is a Gecko Winter. Stay inside and drink a hot cup of Java. Only Geckos will eat a lot less during Brumation, and a lot more before it begins.

    The decrease in Day hours and decrease in temperature will usually get them into it, although I believe only some species do this, not all.

    Its like hibernation but they will still wake up to drink and eat if they do.

    If you want some more clear details you can always ask him.

    All the best! = D

    EDIT: Aside from Brumation; if your Leo is showing signs, it may just be Food boredom. Its common that Leos will not eat a certain food that they have been eating for a while. They'll continue soon after, just be patient and all will be well

    Tile is great, if your lizards are indigenous to your bathroom
