    well there your only two of the same breed right so they get lonley without the other it might be molting aswell just keep an eye on them if you notice the same problem iso the one thats digging the other up or it could just be an ideal place to destress

    what happens is itsy will dig then bitsy will go into the hole and push itsy out!
    then itsy will make a new one and it happens all over again!
    this time though itsy whent to deep for bitsy to get her so bitsy gave up!
    if itsys molting how long will she be under?

    chriping usually means somethings wrong it means they are feeling threatened. Ive noticed my e's its almost like singing i cant even explain the sound. Yeh she shouldnt take long to molt if shes going to just keep an eye on the two.
