In Reply to: how active should my HL be.................. posted by niki on July 23, 2002 at 16:43:32:

: hi everyone. i am very concerned about my HL. i have had him for about one month now and he has completly stopped being active. he sleeps ALL day long and just moves to find a different place to sleep. he has been feed ants for the majority of the time that i have had him but i ran out and i should be recieving more from lifestyles on thursday. he is in a 20gallon long tank with hot spots reaching 100 degrees. he has a water dish but i also spray down the tank every other day. the substrate i use is bone/calcium sand. is there anything that i am possibly doing wrong? i really feel like he is slowly dying but then again i have never raised HL's before. are they normally very unactive? please, any advice would be appreciated! thanks, niki

:It is that time of the year, Niki, when HLs take a "summer siesta." The sand you are using may, and I say may be a problem, but it is hard to say. I do not use "artificial sqand" for my captive study HLs. I use the materials from HL habitats and it is the best to use. Who makes this "sand"? I always have problems with materials that are not "natural" materials. They may be made of natural materials, but it is not what you find in natural settings. Keep a watch on the HL and monitor the HL's weight. If there is a drop, post asap. Lester G. Milroy III
