Why does my bearded dragon sleep alot?

A common reason why a bearded dragon sleeps alot is because of brumation.

When bearded dragons brumate, it is their body voluntarily slowing down and their motabilism coming to a near standstill. This enables them to not eat and drink anything for long periods of time without losing weight and keeping their overall health.

It is an instinct that they have, even when they are in captivity

There are certain times in a year when temperatures drop and food.

So when you find that your bearded dragon is sleeping a great deal, this is often the reason why.
