Hi, how are your babies doing?Mine is doing great!
I think my girl doesnt like to be in a wet place so much so i covered the bottom of her cage with rocks, pebbles, the same that is used for aquariuns.Its cold but its not wet.I discovered she didnt like so much moisture because i often saw her on the only dry place she had in her cage.But i put a huge and shallow bowl of water for her to get wet whenever she wants.
The room temperature cannot be very warm because she becomes lethargic.
As i cover her cage during the night she is becoming active during the day.
She still freezes when i handle her but not so much.I must be extra careful because when i think she will freeze she starts running like crazy!I have had her for 5 weeks now and she is getting fat!
I think she likes greens also, the same i give to my iguana.I have seen her snout with tiny pieces of collards on it.!!LOL!!
I love my girl so much i ordered 2 more crocs skinks, a male and another female.
She eats her poop so i almost never see any poop around.Its difficult to see her eating but ive already seen mine eating 2 mealworms at the same time.But i never saw her eating crickets.I even think she is afraid of the crickets so im not giving her any cricket anymore.When the cricket die its body decays very easily in such a wet environment so i decided to stop giving her crickets and stop with such a humid cage.
