over the last couple of days i've noticed that my adult female cresty is coming out late afternoon, as early as 4:30ish. she has never done this before that i know of. shes very secretive and hides all day. i only see her late at night when i feed her and turn the lights out. to be coming out at this time is unusual. the day i first noticed i picked her up to check her and as my hand approached she kinda shook and squeaked at me, as if she was scared. i handle her quite regurally and she has never done this before. she shook so much i thought she might lose her tail. :(
my only though was that as its getting dark outside at this time of year, could it trigger her coming out? even though all lights are still on?
