Lilysmommy Didn't realize how long I left this thread without any updates! Anyway, cleaned the girls' cages today & thought I'd post some pictures of what they look like right now.

Pancake is the first one, on top, and Bindi is the second, on bottom. They get treats (frozen dubia roaches & superworms) hidden in the fake aquarium plants/decor, the ceramic frog in Bindi's cage, and under cardboard egg carton sections. They each have a puzzle toy as well.

Bindi likes both toys MUCH more than Pancake! She used to have the orange/blue one &
never had a problem with it, once she figured out the doors. I've been using the disk attachment for her current toy (the square one), which was no problem. Switched to the blue caps shown in the picture for tonight, can't wait to see how she does with it!

Pancake is either lazy or not smart. I put the superworms hanging half out of the doors for the toy she has & she'll grab them most of the time. But if she knocks them back under the door, she won't get them out. No clue what she's thinking!

Artemis-Ichiro All that sucks. Take your time and focus on yourself so you can heal and you also know where to find me if you need anything.

Lilysmommy I'm going to be gone off the forum again for a short while - probably only a week or so, but we'll see. the past two weeks have been awful - found the remains of one dead crab in the tank, no clue what happened. got into a minor car crash, I'm physically fine, but it was my first, I had a massive panic attack, and I'm still not entirely handling it well. going to be traveling for a short bit soon here and that's not helping mental health much. Aaaaaaaand to top it all off I just found a crab nearly drowned in their fresh water pool, no clue why the fake plant ladder was out of the pool and I'm extremely upset at myself. have him set up with all I can do for him, but don't know if he'll make it. I'll try to be back in a week or so if things are better.

Pancake went to the spa tonight, to get gunk off her visor quills & trim her nails. She's very unhappy, but content enough to splat out on my chest in her towel now. My weird sweet girl.

Lilysmommy Pancake had a quick trip to the vet today as two out of the past five days, she's had a bubbly wet nose. It kept coming & going, but made me nervous enough that I called yesterday & they squeezed me in. The vet couldn't hear anything, so we're holding off on antibiotics for now, which I'll take as good news! She said I could email/call anytime this week if Pancake seems to get worse again & we can start antibiotics if I want.

We took a selfie while we waited for the vet:

She acted nothing like a hedgehog, as usual. Didn't fuss at all about the stethescope, then started licking the vet's wrist & anointed, making her giggle. She's such a good weird dog-hedge. ♥

Lilysmommy Got the new crab shells today! I'm really happy with them. Only one is a little bigger than the ordered opening size, which is okay. Planning to have them boiled & added to the tank by this weekend to see if anyone takes an interest!

Lilysmommy Thanks!

I'm still really upset too. It's been really hard going into my room because I keep wanting to check her tank out of habit, but there's no one in there. It keeps giving me a jolt to not see the light on either. I've been trying not to harass Jack too much, but he understands. I got a couple readings on her humidity & temp today - it seems that the cool side temp dips down a tad to 77-78F at night when the light is off (or perhaps when the thermostat has the heat panel off, haven't figured out which yet) & is at 80-81 otherwise. I'm pretty happy with that range, regardless of which scenario is causing it. If it's a nighttime dip, that pretty much emulates natural conditions anyway, and if it's just fluctuation from the panel, that's still within the right range & not a huge difference. I'm so impatient to go out & visit her this weekend!!

Oh, and I posted the enclosure pictures on Tumblr, to get the opinion of a couple snake blogs I really admire on there too. One of them replied & gave me some great advice on how to use more of the vertical space for her & a great way to set up a basking area for her, so I'll be hopefully doing that this weekend or next. I'll probably post updated pics once it's done!

FinnickHog Everything looks so good! The crab tank is amazing!

I'm still so sad that Charis had to move out, but her new cage looks great. She'll definitely be happy there!
