bowsers been waking up in the sun and movin around, hasn’t eaten in a few weeks but I’ve herd that can be normal? He’s drank, I’m hoping he eats something soon. His temperature hasn’t been getting down to 60 at night, he sleeps and my room and the last few nights right befit with fall asleep it’s still in the 70s even w a fan on and window open (before I fall asleep) and in the morning it gets down to like 69, is this okay,? Does it HAVE to be in the 60s

in order for him to digest his food his inner core temperature has to be up in the 80s. So he needs a light to be able to sit under and warm himself up before he'll eat.

Yeah he has a light that can get up too over 100 but I keep it at around 95, he just sleeps allllll day and still hasn’t eaten, I’m hoping it’s something to do with him trying to hibernate still
