:Hi I have two desert horned lizards which I take very good care of. I have noticed some say that HL's hibernate. I was wondering if this applies to desert HL's and if so when do they usually begin this process? My two are still doing their normal activities so.. Also while hibernating do they come out to eat or drink? Thanks so much.


:Horned lizards may temporarily come out of hibernation to eat or drink. Typically, the storage of fat will carry them through hibernation. The fat storage supplies the necessary food supplies and water. The metabolic rates of HLs drops dramatically, so the need for supplemental food supplies is not normally needed. Lester G.
