In Reply to: Terrible winter so far....... posted by tgreb on January 24, 2003 at 07:23:38:
:Just when you think you have everything figured out these lizards will kick you square in the a$$. As a couple of you know I have had some crappy luck so far this winter. I lost my oldest female San Esteban Island chuckwalla and the female Baja Blue Rock lizard AR sent me at the beginning of December during hybernation. Although both seemed very fat and healthy they seemed to be severely dehydrated if that is possible. My adult male Baja Blue Rock lizard also seems to be on his way out. Attempts to rehydrate him seem to be failing miserably. Then my wife calls me at work yesterday and tells me that my yearling male cyclura lewisii hybrid seems very lethargic. Well by the time I got home he was dead. Also very healthy looking and was eating like a pig just the day before. I figure if this keeps up I will have no lizards by spring and will be free again. Since it's been kinda slow I figured I would just update you all.
Brumation, just abit, alot lower than spring and summer, but just enough like the other poster said if they want to come out and bask they can, and if I happen to see them up I put a few munchies in with them. I do it with chuck, collareds, bearded dragon, BTS, emerald swifts, uro's so on.... this does not stop them from brumating during cold, but they all pop out from time to time to drink and get a bite, also I know people think this is very wrong, but so far so good !!! And as far as them burning to much fat because of some heat, HAVE NOT SEEN IT !!! They all stay fat !!! Again really sorry, Hang in there ! :0) Eve
