    Wah. All 5 of my micro es molted in the past month. They all look wonderful. But one has a problem. He just came up with a deformed leg. The bottom segment is at a right angle; looks like hes wearing a shoe. Argh.

    He otherwise seems really great... I hope this doesnt affect his social life, I wouldnt want the other hermies calling him names... (but seriously, I hope he is okay, I am a bit worried about his dilemma).

    I almost peed my pants! Wearing a shoe-His social life! I know its not a laughing matter, but you are just too darn funny.

    I wonder what the heck would cause that to happen. I would worry it would snap off if it got caught on something [​IMG]

    I need a camera ARGH.. I HATE being cameraless. [​IMG]

    Ive been calling him Lefty, for obvious reasons. But if you have a better name idea, feel free. I never named 4 of my 5 E micros because theyre all identical in size and appearance, so I figured Id never keep track. Kinda just called the lot of them the Ecuadorian Five. [​IMG] hee!

    I have an E that came up from a molt last week with a deformed leg. Sounds alot like what yours is like. My 8 year old daughter, is soooo worried that she will die of it, or the other hermies will kill her. So far she is doing great. Getting around, being with the other hermies( no one bothering her), eating, drinking, climbing.. ect. I have a pix of her in my yahoo photos. In the Es folder.
