Desert Ig

Last week I decided to wake up my 2 adult desert igs after they have been brumating for 7 months now.
The girl seems to have a bit of an eye infection which prompted me to do this.
I few drops of some Rx solution from when my son had pinkeye seems to have cleared it up.
They are both doing push ups and eating well. The baby now six months old is in another
vivarium and fortunatly what I thought was a male is looking more like a female.

I tend to agree about the discussion below that undigested plant material may not be as critical as thought if left in the gut at low temps. does'nt this happen in the wild on unseasonaly warm winter days when herbivours nibble a little then go back down for weeks or months ?
