    Clowny has lost two legs on his left. I took a shoe box and some stones with one of the houses , I also put some water and food in the box (the reason that i did a shoe box because I don't have another tank). Is this okay doing this? I do not want another leg broken. This is what happen to Paco then he died so I am helping this guy out. Please help

    Something is probably wrong with the temp or humidity. Check that and make sure your humidity gauge is calibrated.

    I would also take out the stones for a substrate and put in some sand or Eco Earth or Forest Bedding (100% shredded coconut husk) deep enough for him to bury. Are you keeping the shoe box in your tank? The hermie most definitely needs the proper heat and humidity, foods for stress and waters with dishes he can get into easily.

    Keeping my fingers crossed.....

    Yeah, like Mckenny said there could be other reasons he couyld be dropping limbs. The substrate might not be diggable(like gravel, stones) or not damp enough. A shoe box will not hold humidity/temp in if you are keeping it outside the tank. Also, if you don't have one already, you should buy humidity/temp. gauges.

    You might want to make sure he is getting calcium and protein etc. He may be like calcium deprived or something.:confused:

    I hope he's okay. :( You should check everything and make sure the humidity and temperature are good. You should also replace the stones with sand or coconut fiber so he could dig to destress if he needs to. Please fill out the emergency questionnaire so we know more about him. Good luck!
