mammal like reptile

Hey, kids!

We all had fun watching Rainbow Dash come to terms with her friend having to hibernate for the winter, but all fun and games aside…

Did you know that in real life, many reptiles enter a state of dormancy called brumation?  It’s true!  But instead of sleeping and living off of reserves of fat, like mammals,  reptiles simply slow their metabolism down to a halt, so they don’t have to eat.

Is it close to fall and your pet reptile hasn’t been eating very often?  They may want to brumate!  Make sure you check with your veterinarian to make sure you know everything to help get your pet through this ordeal.
