When do Red Tegus usually start getting more active? Yoshi did not brumate his/her 1st year and grew like godzilla. This year Yoshi stopped eating and slowed down. Still out on occasion and will come put and walk around the living room a bit. He stopped eating, but is starting to eat a couple times a week now. Is this normal?

It varies among spe ies and individuals. In the wild, argies, for example, brumate 4-6 mo.depending on geographic location.

Allow the days to lengthen and, and Toshi will settle on a time.

You're welcome. Brumation patterns can be vexing to figure sometimes.
