Hi to the person who had the burrowing Frillie....

I have one or two suggestions...
Either your temps are too high.... Have you checked that your temps are accurate maybe with a new gauge? Are you sure that your Frillie is just not now too big to be able to move away from the heat to a cool spot? The vivs become TOO small TOO soon and what was OK for a juvenile is not OK for a near adult......

Also check your humidity....Too dry or too wet....Why have you got moss in the viv? Around 60 is way enough humidity...plus a light direct spray of fine mist water once per day (AM).
My female hides away by swinging flat to the opposite side of a branch but only when she's gravid.... Burrowing is NOT normal behaviour even if your Frillie is "self brumating".....There is something not right in your viv.....or maybe your boy is ill?
Any other symptoms? Is he eating well and etc....Have you put any thing else in the viv or the room in which you have the viv which he may not like? Could HE be a SHE?
Hope this helps
Suggs
