    My boy went down in November. He’s still sleeping a lot and not eating. I read they can stay down up to seven months? He looks in good health. Still got plenty of weight on him. Does anyone else have a lazy tegu?

    Mines still somewhat sleeping as well, I believe she went down around November or December. Occasionally I may see her come out but usually just for a drink.

    I do however wake her up occasionally and take her outside when the weather is good and after waking up a bit more she does begin to seem to enjoy it. When I get her out, I also feed her and then let her bask for a while on my desk or outside to digest the food before she goes back in her enclosure, which she then basks for an hour or so under the lamps and then goes back to sleeping under the slab of stone in her tank.
