Well my (f) beardy has been sleeping for 18 days or so,i have been looking in at her every other day.What iv'e noticed in the last few day is she appears to be bloated.Has anyone encountered this while there beardy was in winter sleep.She was aware she was about to brumate and ate nothing for a week and had two bile poops the day of going to sleep.My question is should i slowy wake her so i can deal with this and be safe its not parasitic or let her sleep and deal with it when she wakes on her own.I would think its not that comfortable being bloated even though shes in a deep sleep..B
let her sleep as shes going into brummination, mine do, fat female and several i have seen this week
Well sadly to say the bloating was inpart due to the fact she was dead.I could only see her back end when she was in her cave and not her eyes other wise i would have noticed she was dead long ago.Infact i beleive she dead died soon after she went in her cave.She seemed to be in great health and only 3yrs old.She had two small bile movements that day leading me to beleive she was cleaing her system out for sleep but it might have been a sighn of something wrong.I will be talking with my vet today i'll see what he say's.I'm mystified as to the cause..B

Condolencies. I'd be gutted if my beardie dies. Hope you find out what happened.

You can have my isolation, you can have the hate that It brings . You can have my absence of faith, you can have my Everything.
sorry about that, my female is underground and look asleep and will be be for the next couple of months.
Again sorry
She had two small bile movements

OK. Bile is the substance produced in our stomach to aid in the digestion of food. To defecate, or poo, or take a crap, is to have a BOWEL movement.

My condolences on the loss of your beardie. Emotion: sad
