    Well tonight we lost our first hermie named greeny. We have only had hermies about 3 months. I'm not sure what happened to greeny he was small and after a month with us he went through a molt. He was doing great then last week he just started dropping legs and his large pincer. I put him in ISO but he didn't make it. It's affected me more than i thought it would he was one of my favorites. He would only come out in my hand and would hide from everyone else. I'm gonna miss him.:(

    My sympathies as well. Perhaps it's the moon, as I just had one perfectly healthy dollar-size hermie do its full molt face-first into a jumbo shell (wonderful idea, as it has protection and can eat exo safely), then turn around and roll over. Misting was all I could offer, but the smell was there yesterday...I'm feeling even worse not knowing the cause of death to avoid it in the future.
    You always ask yourself "Why?" It had succeeded previous molts and swaps with me.
