I suppose my thread is somewhat like the one a couple spots down... I've had my hermies for anywhere from 11 months to 6 months. UP until the last week or two they have all stayed out, and been very active. I have 10 total, and I could always look in the tank and count and find all 10 of then. Recently I can't count but 5... So I suppose the others have went into a molt..?? I have one 'BIG' one. I suppose he's a bit of an odd one. I have two tanks, and the top tank has about 2" of substrate, and the bottom tank has about 4". I figured the big one would molt downstairs when the time came. I have two of these medium size wooden U shaped tunnels for the hermies to hide in. Sometimes they get substrate all clogged up on both ends of the tunnel and I can't see if any are in there. (I usually keep one end against the glass) Anyway.. I was working on changing out my water bottle with fresh water, etc, general tiding up, and lifted up the tunnel, and here sat this BIG hermie. He had buried down as far as he could, and shoved EE up on the ends to make it dark. I figured this was his version of 'molting' (who knows they keep us so confused) Anyway he;s been missing for a couple weeks, I figure he'll be OK. In anyway, he moved a bit, I covered him back up quickly and left him alone. The other four Hermies ... One I am pretty sure is molting,... I can look at the bottom of the tank, and see him down there against the glass. The other two I haven't saw for a couple weeks. Also If you have been reading my "out of the Shell" thread in the general care area (I suppose should be in 911)... anyway that hermie now seems to have disappeared. Maybe he is going to molt also after getting into a different shell..?? Poor little fella. He's had a rough week... In any event I had PLANNED on putting him in ISO,.. but now that he's disappeared,.. I suppose it's just best to leave him be as is..??
