Well, I had been pretty worried about one of our baby HLs ever since I got back from California on Wednesday. Aimee did a great job caring for the little buggers while I was gone, but I was a little concerned about one right when I got back, since it is nowhere near as active as the other, and quite a bit smaller. It's stomach always looks a little on the empty side, and it does not eat as much as the other one.

Well - For whatever reason, it learned how to drink water off the walls of the aquarium today :-) I have read a lot about the reason HLs need ants, and it is stated that Formic acid turns into water when it hits stomach acid. Therefore... The ant diet could be considered primarily a water necessity. So... I spent two days trying to figure out how to get more water into this little guy when suddenly he started doing it on his own!

I have a newfound hope for this one... Wish us luck!

Mark
